Woodland, CA – One Person Killed in Fatal Accident on 5 Freeway

fatal accidentWoodland, CA (October 1, 2018) – In Woodland, one person was killed in a fatal accident on the 5 Freeway. The accident happened on Thursday, September 27 around 4 p.m.

The one person who lost his life in this serious accident was identified as Alfred Perales Castellanos. The 57-year-old victim was driving on the 5 Freeway at the time of the accident just north of County Road 102. 36-year-old Robert Snow had been traveling behind three vehicles that were stopped when he failed to slow, stop, or turn his vehicle in time. This caused him to slam into another vehicle, which forced him into a Ford Fiesta and a Cadillac.

Castellanos was in the Ford Edge at the time and was pronounced dead at the scene. The occupant of the Cadillac was identified as 58-year-old Elizabeth Karns, who allegedly took off and was later arrested for DUI.

The accident is still being investigated at this time.
