2 Killed and 5 Injured in 605 Freeway Multi-Vehicle Crash

At least two people were killed in a multi-vehicle accident in Cerritos last night.

According to CHP, the car accident occurred on the northbound San Gabriel River 605 freeway shortly before 7pm.

Aside from the two fatalities, 5 more people were brought to a nearby hospital for injuries with four in critical condition.

Authorities are still investigating the circumstances which led to the crash.

Finding the liable party in a multi-vehicle crash can be daunting; finding out who struck who first is always a challenge because of the large number of vehicles involved.

Although it is difficult, it is not impossible.

The victims and their families are advised to hire the services of a good personal injury and wrongful death attorney.

They can help the victims gather evidence that will show who the liable party in the accident is and to whom should they file their personal injury or wrongful death claim against.

Even if the victim has some fault in the accident, he or she may still file a claim as California is a comparative negligence state.

However, the recovered damages will also be reduced proportionate to the victim’s level of liability.
