Car Accidents in Santa Clarita, California

A traffic accident that occurred near Agua Dulce this morning in the Santa Clarita Valley area resulted in two men being sent to separate local hospitals with injuries. The traffic collision occurred on the southbound lanes of Highway 14 near Escondido Canyon Road in the early morning around 6:45 a.m. The vehicles that the two men were driving collided, resulting in one of the cars flipping over onto its roof. The driver of that car was seriously injured. The collision resulted in two lanes of traffic being backed up for more than an hour.

Last year in June, a 19-car pileup occurred on southbound lanes of Highway 14 close to Acton which injured 18 people. That incident took place after a big rig plowed into some cars that had stopped while road debris was being picked up. Since then, that particular stretch of highway has been regarded as dangerous, according to emergency response crews in the area.

In California, 2,791 people died in traffic accidents in 2011 which was a slight increase over 2010 levels. Pedestrian and motorcycle accidents also increased that year.
