Early morning July 18, two men were seriously injured after a Santa Clarita Valley crash on the southbound Interstate 5 north of Templin Highway, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
At around 3:33 a.m., a 1992 Nissan was heading southbound when it rear-ended a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban, pushing it off the roadway to the left and down a dirt embankment. The vehicle overturned.
The driver of the Chevrolet, Hector Sierra, 59, of Bakersfield, was airlifted to an area hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the Nissan, Daniel Perez, 24, of Granada Hills, sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital by ambulance.
“At this time, the investigation is still ongoing,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm.
