One dead, five hurt in Laguna Beach crash

February 28, 2014

n01edf-b781254854z.120140126174126000gcc1i6j1v.1LAGUNA BEACH – One person died and five others were injured after a five-car crash Sunday afternoon on Coast Highway that closed the roadway for hours.

A criminal investigation into the crash is ongoing, said Capt. Jason Kravetz of the Laguna Beach Police Department; detectives are investigating whether drugs, alcohol or road rage was a factor in the crash.

“There are so many cars involved that had their own private collision with this car,” Kravetz said. “It makes it more convoluted than you would think.”

At about 1:30 p.m., police were called to a crash at Coast Highway and Irvine Cove Drive.

The crash began when the male driver of a Honda sedan going north hit a car going in the same direction, Kravetz said. Police are not sure whether the car was to the side or in front of the Honda.

The Honda driver then hit more cars when he veered into the southbound lanes, because of either the first crash or an overcorrection, Kravetz said.

A passenger in the Honda was declared dead at the scene. The driver suffered serious injuries and was taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo. He is expected to survive, Kravetz said. The four others injured in the crash suffered minor to severe injuries.

The passenger who died has not been identified, Kravetz said. Identities of the others involved also were not released.

Met with the attorneys to discuss my auto accident case. I was very impressed with their knowledge and expertise in injury cases. They signed me up that day, helped me get the treatment I needed, and settled my case for an amount much more greater than expected. I’m a customer for life.
