One unidentified person was killed while three others were injured after a multi-vehicle traffic collision in Reseda on Sunday evening, May 23.
The deadly collision transpired at approximately 8:00 p.m. on Corbin Avenue, just north of Saticoy Street in Reseda.
Nine vehicles were reportedly involved in the collision. Two cars were initially street racing on the northbound lanes of Corbin Avenue.
The two vehicles lost control and started spinning into other parked vehicles and a utility pole.
An unspecified number of cars sustained extensive damage from the crash. One person was pronounced dead at the scene.
Another person had to be extricated from the wreckage by emergency personnel. The trapped person and another injured party were taken to an area hospital for treatment.
Local authorities are further investigating the accident. The Los Angeles Police Department suspects that speeding and street racing were a big factor in the collision.
Fatal Multi-Vehicle Crash Statistics
Car accidents happen every day on U.S. roadways. These accidents can be life-altering and traumatic. Because of how universal cars are to our lives, drivers often forget just how dangerous they can become and that severe and even deadly car crashes can occur.
According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 33,654 fatal vehicle crashes in 2018 caused 36,560 deaths. Multi-vehicle collisions are just one type of car accident. This type of accident usually occurs when three or more cars are involved in the accident.
They commonly stem from a “chain-reaction” crash, wherein one vehicle will bump into another, causing it to crash into other cars on the roadway potentially. These types of crashes are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving.
