El Segundo Crash Leaves Woman Dead

35-year-old Evelyn Linares was killed as the result of a wrong-way collision in El Segundo on Saturday morning. 

The accident took place at 1:13 a.m. on April 23rd on the 105 Freeway. 

Linares was reportedly traveling east within the westbound lanes in a Toyota Camry. 

As a result, her vehicle collided head-on with a Toyota Prius driven by a 35-year-old man.

Sadly, Linares was declared dead at the scene.

The male driver was also taken to Harbor UCLA Medical Center with major injuries. 

Additionally, authorities issued a SigAlert for two hours at 1:45 as crews worked at the scene.

Those with helpful information are urged to contact the CHP’s office at 310-642-3939.

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. 

A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents.
