Sylmar Multi-Car Crash Injures Eight, Including Four Children [Los Angeles, CA]

Los Angeles, CA (May 23, 2024)- Sylmar Multi-Car Crash Injures Eight, including four children, in a multi-vehicle collision at a three-way intersection in Sylmar, leaving one of the vehicles overturned.

The crash occurred on Thursday shortly before 3 p.m. in the 14900 block of West Hubbard Street, involving at least four vehicles, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

Emergency responders quickly arrived on the scene to find a chaotic and distressing situation with multiple injuries and significant vehicle damage.

“Though seatbelts were used, some of the children were improperly restrained,” Humphrey stated. “No child car seats were being used, and at least two of the children were sharing one seatbelt.”

The lack of proper restraints for the children highlighted the severity of the situation and the potential for more serious injuries. Fortunately, none of the passengers were ejected from the vehicles, which could have resulted in even more devastating outcomes.

Two adults were transported to hospitals in serious condition, requiring immediate medical attention for their injuries. Four children, aged between 6 and 12, were hospitalized with minor injuries.

Despite the relatively minor nature of their injuries, the psychological trauma for these young children could be significant. Two other individuals involved in the crash declined hospital treatment but were undoubtedly shaken by the incident.

In the aftermath of such a traumatic event, victims and their families often face numerous challenges, both emotional and financial.
