According to the Fullerton Police Department, a 29-year-old man died and several others were injured after he was involved in a multi-vehicle collision in Fullerton Sunday afternoon, October 23, 2022.
The Fullerton Police Department said the crash transpired at about 2:45 p.m. on Harbor Boulevard and La Entrada Place.
It has been reported that a 29-year-old man was driving a dark gray Kia Forte at “a high rate of speed” when he collided with a gray Volkswagen Passat that had attempted to turn in front of him.
According to the release, both vehicles were pushed into the northeast corner of the intersection’s wall, spun around, and came to rest north of the intersection near a bus bench.
A third vehicle, a red Dodge Neon, swerved to avoid the crash but lost control and came to rest at the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and Hermosa Drive, a block away.
The Kia driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while the Passat driver and passengers were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. There has been no update on the condition of the Neon driver.
While the investigation continues, police do not suspect that drugs or alcohol played a role.

Multi-Vehicle Accident Statistics
Unfortunately, multi-car pile-ups are on the rise on the country’s highways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that collisions involving multiple vehicles account for nearly 20% of all accidents.
Accidents involving multiple vehicles often occur due to a combination of factors, the most common of which is distracted driving. Distracted drivers are more likely to cause accidents because they miss warning signs and other road hazards.
The factors of exhaustion, bad weather, and malfunctioning vehicles also contribute to pileups involving multiple cars. Multi-vehicle accidents are a leading cause of personal injury and property damage, and this trend persists regardless of the circumstances. As a result, motorists must avoid distractions and keep their attention on the road.
