Two people from the other vehicles reported non-life threatening injuries that did not require medical attention.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected to have played a role in causing the accident.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to call Sgt. Anil Adam of the WPD Traffic Division at (714) 548-3770.
