Anaheim, CA (July 29, 2020) – One man was killed and another was badly injured during a car accident on the Interstate 5 Freeway on the evening of Tuesday, July 28th.
According to a local news source, a black Chevrolet sedan with one driver and one passenger inside collided with a pole holding up a highway sign. The collision took place on Interstate 5 between Euclid Street and Brookhurst Street.
Local law enforcement, fire and rescue squads, and emergency response teams all reported to the scene of the accident at about 7:40 p.m. Upon arrival, they located the passenger trapped inside the wrecked vehicle.
An official from the fire department lied across the hood of the car and administered medical care to the victim while other emergency responders worked on extricating him. The rescuers used pneumatic extrication tools and labored for approximately 25 minutes in order to safely free the passenger.
After the victim was extracted from the wreckage, medical personnel confirmed that the 19-year-old man had sadly died in the collision. His identity has not yet been released to the public as law enforcement is still awaiting confirmation and notification of his next of kin.
The driver of the Chevrolet, a 26-year-old male, was transported via ambulance to a trauma center for emergency treatment of various unspecified injuries.
No further details concerning this fatal accident are available at this time since it is still under investigation by local law enforcement.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
