Chain-Reaction Accident on 110 Freeway in Carson Leaves Two People with Major Injuries
CARSON, CA (February 8, 2021) – Two people suffered serious injuries after a chain-reaction accident on 110 Freeway near Carson Street.
CHP officials said two separate collisions happened Monday evening around 8:10 p.m.
The first crash occurred when a GMC pickup truck that had been stopped on the shoulder tried to re-enter traffic. A Lexus sedan then rear-ended the pickup. The impact caused the GMC to crash into a big rig.
The second crash involved a Honda Prelude which was stopped on the freeway because of the first collision. The Prelude was struck by a Ford Mustang, which then lost control and slammed into a Kia Soul.
Paramedics rushed both the driver and passenger of the Prelude to Harbor UCLA Medical Center with serious injuries.
Several others sustained minor injuries.
CHP shut down the northbound side of the freeway for more than three hours, backing up traffic for miles. The freeway was reopened a little before midnight.
The cause of this chain-reaction crash and factors involved remain under investigation.
