Three Injured in Santa Ana Chain Reaction Crash
Posted on May 17, 2011
A woman and her two children sustained injuries after a four-vehicle crash on I-5 in Santa Ana.
The Orange County motor vehicle accident occurred on Monday, May 16 at 1:20 in the afternoon on northbound I-5 just north of North Main Street and south of the 22 freeway. Four vehicles were involved in the collision: a 1968 Jaguar, a Honda Civic, a Toyota Yaris and an 18-wheeler truck. The California chain-reaction accident blocked four lanes of the I-5.
The female driver of the Yaris and her two young children sustained injuries in the Santa Ana accident. They were taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange for treatment. There is no word of their condition.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation; however, the Jaguar had lost its right-rear wheel either before or during the collision. One officer suggested that the loss of the wheel may have caused or contributed to the crash.
