The media isn't reporting the facts. The family of 5 in the back Toyota Corolla were all killed instantly except the mom who died a little later at the hospital. There were 3 small children in the back seat of the car, 2 of which were trapped and entangled in the wreckage that good smaritans couldn't pull out. A police officer told a Spanish speaking reporter that the driver of the Dodge Durango that ran into the back of the family's Corolla at 90mph was "high as a kite." A female passenger in the Durango was thrown out of the truck when it slammed into the stoplight where 2 of the vehicles came to rest.
The driver would have ran the red light but he slammed into the back of the family's Corolla sitting at the signal which sent both vehicles into on coming traffic where a blue Dodge was struck but the driver refused medical care even tho he was injured and his truck totaled.
The family in the Corrola were Hispanic. The driver of the Dodge Durango was also Hispanic and his passenger a white female. The other Dodge driver was a white male who said he was in an accident a month earlier when he was hit riding his Harley.
The scene was very gruesome the little girl who was pulled out of the Corolla head was split open and her brains thrown from her head onto the sidewalk. Several witnesses had photos on their phones of the bodies and brain matter. Many said it took authorities 15 minutes before they even got to the scene and locals know that both police and the fire dept. are less than 5 minutes from where the accident occurred.
This is a very dangerous intersection where a lot of accidents happen. A pedestrian was showered with debris. 2 months ago at the same location a man riding his bicycle was run over and killed with the driver leaving the scene and was never caught.
