Jurupa Valley, CA (July 28, 2020) – A multi-vehicle traffic accident during which three people were seriously injured took place on the Interstate 15 Freeway on the afternoon of Monday, July 27th.

According to an online post by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the accident occurred at around 2:10 p.m. when several cars collided with one another in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15, just north of Highway 60.

Firefighters from the Riverside County Fire Department and emergency medical personnel both reported to the crash site. Upon their arrival, they successfully extricated a person who was trapped inside one of the wrecked vehicles with the use of a hydraulic spreader, a rescue tool more commonly known as the Jaws of Life. 

A total of three victims sustained injuries during the accident.

Paramedics transported two injured parties, one with critical injuries and one with moderate injuries, to a nearby trauma center for emergency medical treatment. 

According to police reports, the third victim declined medical treatment and refused to go to the hospital. 

Local law enforcement officers are working to determine cause and liability in this accident.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Jurupa Valley, CA - Jaws of Life Save Victim in I-15 Wreck

In California, on average, just under 4,000 people are killed in car accidents every year while tens of thousands more suffer physically and financially from accident-related injuries. This fact is illustrated by the overwhelming number of personal injury claims across the state that arose from some form of a motor vehicle collision. 

In terms of the United States as a whole, more than 36,000 people are killed in car accidents annually. 

Sadly, a compelling portion of these vehicular deaths and critical injuries could have been avoided entirely if every driver concentrated solely on the task of driving, paid attention to their surroundings, and followed the rules of the road.
