A black Mercedes was reportedly weaving in and out of lanes before it collided with another vehicle on 5 Freeway
Laguna Hills, Calif. – A driver was seriously injured following a traffic collision involving at least two vehicles on Interstate 5 Freeway in Laguna Hills Sunday morning.
At about 9:18 a.m. on November 12, CHP officials received reports of a vehicle swerving in and out of lanes along Interstate 5 Freeway.
About a minute later a traffic collision involving three vehicles was reported on southbound 5 Freeway north of Lake Forest Drive.
The driver of a Mercedes, described only as a female, sustained major injuries and was taken to Mission Heritage in Laguna Hills. It was not immediately clear if any other person was injured in the crash.
Witnesses told investigators that the driver of the black Mercedes was weaving in and out of lanes prior to the traffic collision.
A white Toyota was at the scene of the crash and was blocking the middle lanes.
No additional details regarding the crash were provided.
The crash remains under investigation but police suspect drugs or alcohol may have played a role in the incident.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a major cause of car accidents. Impaired driving is dangerous and exposes the impaired driver and other road users to the risk of being injured or killed in a traffic collision. An impaired driver is likely to cause a crash because the use of alcohol and drugs impairs vision, judgment, and reaction time.
Some common types of collisions caused by DUI suspects include wrong-way collisions, head-on crashes, and speeding accidents.
If a collision involving a DUI suspect results in injury or death, the consequences are severe and may include long jail terms or heavy fines.
If you or someone you love was involved in a drunk driving accident, you need to find strong legal representation to defend your rights.
