Encino Accident on Highway 101
A pileup occurred on Thursday in Encino, leaving one person injured on Highway 101.
The accident took place just after 6:00 a.m. within the northbound lanes.
CHP reported that at least 5 vehicles were involved in the collision and was caused by one vehicle losing control.
A Jeep Wrangler ended up blocking the No. 1 lane and an occupant of a Volkswagen Passat suffered head injuries.
Multiple traffic lanes of the highway were shut down for a period of time following the wreck.
Investigators are working to determine fault for the collision.
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.
