Carson, CA – One Person Injured, One Dead after Violent Rollover Crash on Sepulveda Boulevard near Harbor City
Carson, CA (August 8, 2018) – A local news source reported that one person sustained injuries and another died as the result of a violent rollover crash that took place on the 1500 block of Sepulveda Boulevard, in the vicinity of Harbor City. Authorities first responded to the collision at 3:00 PM in the afternoon last Friday, August 3, 2018. At this time, no detailed information concerning the identities of the people involved in the crash has been revealed.
Based on the news report, an unidentified vehicle was traveling near Harbor City when, for indeterminate reasons, it overturned on Sepulveda Boulevard. Sometime later, the Los Angeles County Fire Department sent firefighters to the crash site. Officials reported a male victim had been thrown out of the vehicle and sustained traumatic injuries as a result of the impact.
Sadly, the victim succumbed to his fatal injuries.
Meanwhile, officials also discovered another victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and transported the individual to a nearby hospital to receive treatment.
Given the circumstances, authorities have still not determined where the vehicle was heading or how it initially flipped over. At this time, the local sheriff’s department has assumed authority over the ongoing investigation. As more evidence continues to surface, more information will be released to public sources.
We extend our most heartfelt prayers and our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased victim and wish them strength and peace of mind during this tragic, difficult time. We also extend our loving prayers to the injured victim and wish the patient a swift and efficient recovery.
