Wrong Way Driver Involved in 3-Vehicle Accident on Century Freeway
A fatal crash involving 3 cars and a wrong way driver occurred on the westbound Century Freeway in Linwood on October 24. Shortly after 3:00 am, a young man, who was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, drove onto the highway in the wrong direction and collided head-on with another car. A passenger in that car was killed, and three other persons experienced serious injuries. A third vehicle was also involved in the accident, but early reports did not indicate whether that vehicle’s occupants were injured.
Weeks or months will elapse before all the facts and details of this accident are determined. The injured parties will incur substantial hospital bills and other expenses associated with lost income and pain and suffering. The deceased victim’s survivors will face funeral expenses in addition to other financial losses that are commonly associated with the death of a beloved family member.
