Crash on 5 Freeway in Lebec Kills 1 and Injures 2
Lebec, (June 25, 2018) – According to a local and reliable news source, one person was sadly killed and another was injured in a crash that took place on Interstate 5 Freeway in Lebec. Reports stated that the accident occurred at approximately 9:07 a.m. Sunday morning. The tragic collision occurred in the northbound lane of 5 Freeway.
Reportedly, the reason that a gray Infinity sedan and a white pickup truck collided is still unknown. The impact caused the pickup truck to crash into a fence while the Infinity was sent off the roadway before it overturned. Paramedics were quick to arrive on the scene where they confirmed that one person had died as a result of the collision. That persons’ name is being withheld until the family has been notified.
Additionally, two other people were sent to the hospital for treatment. One of the other victims was reportedly suffering from serious injuries, while the other persons’ injuries were classified as moderate. While the Lebec on-ramp was shut down in order to begin an investigation, that investigation is currently ongoing. Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased victim as we also wish for the other victims to have a full recovery.

The investigation into this accident will be attempting to determine who may have been at fault for the crash. The investigation will likely look into factors such as excessive speed, intoxication, and distracted driving in order to prove liability. If someone is proven to have been negligent behind the wheel, then there very well may be a wrongful death claim as well as personal injury lawsuits to follow.
Many victims who have been injured by, or lost a loved one due to a negligent driver will file a claim for compensation. Hospital bills, funeral costs, loss of current and future wages, and property damage are all reasons why someone may seek compensation. Nevertheless, it is solely up to the victims and/or victims’ family to make such a decision.
