Pileup Involving 9 Vehicles on 5 Freeway in Irvine Kills One; Injures Nine

IRVINE, CA (August 23, 2018) – Nine vehicles collided in Irvine on the 5 Freeway Thursday morning. The crash, which occurred in the southbound lanes, killed one woman. Nine others—including three children—were injured in the early morning crash.

California Highway Patrol said that the pileup happened at roughly 1:30 a.m. All lanes that travel southbound were closed at Alton Parkway.

Responders from the fire department had to work to remove the body of the woman who died; she was trapped in her vehicle. Her name was not released. She was a resident of Chula Vista, 24 years old.

One of the victims was a boy 6 months of age. He had been in the same vehicle as the woman who died. Responders took him to a trauma center.

Other victims were identified as two children, one 10 years old, and another 11 years old. They were also taken to a hospital. Their conditions were not yet reported.

A person who was driving a gray Dodge Challenger, identified as a 22 year old, is alleged to have started the series of crashes that happened in a chain reaction.
