Van Nuys, CA (March 12, 2023) – Just past 1:30 p.m. on March 12, the Los Angeles Police Department was notified that an automobile accident occurred in the Northridge area.

Reports from the police indicate that an older-model station wagon and an unknown number of vehicles collided on Sherman Way in the area of De Celis Place. The impact of the crash caused the older-model vehicle to go off the roadway and strike a pole in the center of the intersection.

The incident blocked multiple lanes of travel, causing disruptions in traffic throughout the area.

Police and firefighters worked to remove the damaged vehicles and debris from the scene. Emergency medical services responded to care for the injured victims and to provide them with transportation to area hospitals.

Car Accidents in California

In California, it is all too common to see people involved in motor vehicle accidents left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Unfortunately, there are several types of accidents that continue to take place every day. Some of the most common include:

  • Pile-up/multi-car accidents: This type of accident occurs when several vehicles collide. There are many reasons why a multivehicle or a pile-up accident will take place. In many cases, these accidents take place in congested areas when divers are distracted. Impairment, speeding, and other acts of negligence can contribute to these accidents taking place.
  • Accidents caused by merging: Drivers who merge into roadways without first checking the area for other vehicles are at risk of causing major accidents. Sadly, these accidents frequently take place at high speeds and have catastrophic consequences for the victims involved.

Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents leave victims with serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment day after day. We see many people left with spinal cord injuries, internal organ injuries, compound fractures, and other significant injuries that impact their lives forever.
