Pileup of 7 Cars In Pismo Beach
One person sustained injuries following a 7-car pileup on Highway 101 on Thursday morning.
The traffic accident occurred around 7:25 a.m. on the northbound side of the road near the 4th street exit.
It was reported that a total of seven vehicles collided due to unknown reasons.
The injuries were moderate and the current condition as well as their name has yet to be disclosed.
As a result of the collision the northbound lanes of Highway 101 were shut down for about three hours.
Investigators are actively working to determine liability.
Multi-vehicle collisions are typically more common in busy intersections or highways. Speeding, weather, distractions, and drowsy or intoxicated driving are main reasons negligent drivers cause these types of wrecks.
When it comes to filing a claim with this type of collision, it gets difficult. This is because multiple vehicles are involved so determining liability can take much longer. Multi-vehicle collision claims are more complex due to numerous victims, multiple negligent drivers, cross-claims and insufficient insurance.
