Altadena, CA. (July 7, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported a crash early Saturday morning that involved several vehicles and resulted in the injury of at least one person in Altadena. The large collision occurred at approximately 3:38 a.m. on the 5 Freeway at Penrose Street. The crash reportedly took place in the southbound lanes.
A total of at least four vehicles were involved in the accident, according to the California Highway Patrol. The collision apparently started with a stalled vehicle on the highway. Reports state that shortly after the vehicle stalled, it was struck by at least four vehicles, one of which was evidently a large commercial tractor-trailer.
One person was reported to have been complaining of an injury, although their condition is not known at this time. No further details were released in reference to the exact number or severity of injuries, and the events that led to the crash are currently under investigation.
We would like to send our deepest sympathies to anyone who may have been hurt in this collision.

Investigators will certainly look at all possible factors that may have contributed to this accident. While it seems that the stalled vehicle caused the collision, there are many unanswered questions pertaining to exactly why that vehicle was stopped on the highway. Depending on the conclusive results of the investigation, there may possibly be a path for a personal injury claim to follow.
Many victims file a claim for compensation because of the terribly high costs that arise after a sudden injury.
