Red Bluff Major Injury Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Red Bluff personal injury lawyer. On Sunday, April 16, 2017, a 5-vehicle collision occurred on Interstate 5 near the Liberal Avenue off-ramp.

What Happened?

According to reports from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) at least 3 vehicles were involved in an accident on Interstate 5 in the early hours of the morning on Sunday. When officers arrived on scene they discovered all the vehicles involved received major damage and were scattered all over the southbound lanes of the interstate. What caused this collision is still being investigated, but it appears it could possibly be a chain reaction accident.

Were There Injuries?

Yes. At least 3 occupants from vehicles involved in this accident were transported by ambulance to Saint Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff with minor to major injuries.

Investigation and Lane Closures

The CHP is leading the investigation surrounding this collision. At this time it is not known if driving under the influence, road rage, distracted driving or speed were contributing factors. Crews from Cal Fire, CHP, and Cal Trans all worked to clear the scene of the collision. Approximately 1.5 miles of the southbound lanes were closed for a short time while the various debris was cleaned from the road.
