Los Angeles County, CA: Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash Causes Car Fire in Saugus
Los Angeles County, California (April 4, 2018): Authorities have begun an active investigation into a fatal two-vehicle collision in Saugus, CA, early yesterday morning, Tuesday, April 3, 2018. The victims have not yet been identified and only limited information has been made publicly available while the investigation remains ongoing.
Officials were notified of the incident just before 7:00 a.m. and emergency response crews were swiftly dispatched to the accident scene on San Francisquito Canyon Road, slightly north of Copper Road. While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, reports note that San Francisquito Canyon Road is narrow, travels over rough terrain, and does not contain a center median divider, making it particularly dangerous for motorists. The collision reportedly caused one of the vehicles to immediately catch fire.
The total number of occupants in either vehicle is unknown, but reports indicate that at least one person was killed and another was hospitalized with injuries ranging in severity from moderate to serious. No updates on the victim’s condition have been released and no additional details have been provided at this time.
