Woman Dies after Losing Control over Vehicle in Fiery Crash

Quick thinking and good reflexes goes a long way when confronted with traffic situations that can lead to vehicle accidents which results to injuries, vehicle damages, and even death.

Unfortunately, a great number of motorists are unable to deal with these situations smartly and fast enough that they often end up compensating for the damages they caused.

A 54-year-old Bell woman is one of the recent victims of fatal vehicular accidents as she lost control of her vehicle that ignited a fiery chain crash at Crenshaw Boulevard. Aside from the woman, three others were also injured in the crash.
According to reports, the woman was going along Santa Monica 10 Freeway on her westbound Plymouth Breeze some time before 5 am when, for unknown reasons, she veered and crashed into the center divider.

The woman’s Plymouth rested facing the opposite direction when it was hit by an approaching Ford Explorer. The number of the vehicles involved in the chain accident was not immediately reported but one of them caught fire and an occupant had to be extricated from the vehicle engulfed in flames.

Authorities said two others were seriously injured in the crash and another person was treated for minor injuries. Identities of all involved persons are yet to be released.

The accident caused some delays as traffic in the westbound lane of the freeway was closed for several hours while authorities investigated and clear debris from the crash.

A lot of factors could have contributed to this unfortunate accident. The authority’s report on what caused the accident should enlighten those involved as to the cause of their sufferings and losses.
