The accident happened around 8:45 am on Saturday, on the southbound side of the 5 Freeway, near Highway 99. Two cars were involved in a collision, and were then struck by a semi-truck, which triggered a chain reaction collision involving almost 20 vehicles.
A 35 year old woman and a 50 year old man were pronounced dead as a result of the accident, and several others were injured. The massive collision remains under investigation, as authorities determine cause and liability in the deadly crash.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort this man and woman’s family and friends as they cope with such an incredible loss,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them, as well as the other parties who were injured, as they try to piece together what happened.”
