Lost Hills, CA – 1 Killed & 1 Critically Injured in Collision on 5 Freeway at Twisselman Rd

Lost Hills, CA (September 18, 2019) – One woman tragically lost her life in a collision that also left one person with serious injuries on Saturday night, September 14th. The crash, which involved two tractor-trailers and a pickup truck took place at approximately 7:30 p.m. in Lost Hills.

According to authorities, 46-year-old Gloria Veloz Vasquez, of Tracy, California, was traveling north on the 5 Freeway when her Ford pickup truck collided with a big rig. The Ford subsequently overturned due to the impact of the crash and was then hit by a second tractor-trailer.

Paramedics accompanied law enforcement at the scene where they pronounced Vasquez dead. A juvenile passenger in the pickup truck was immediately transported to a nearby hospital with major injuries. An investigation into this crash is ongoing.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Gloria Veloz-Vasquez at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.

Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents in California

Unfortunately, more than 3,000 California car accidents resulted in fatalities in 2017 alone, and thousands more resulted in minor to catastrophic injuries. Although there are often many different reasons why a collision can occur, you may be entitled to file a claim for compensation in the event that you have been hurt due to the negligent actions of another party.

Due to the immensely high costs of medical bills and physical recovery on top of lost wages, many victims will opt to file a claim for financial recompense. It is our belief that anyone who has operated a vehicle in a negligent manner, resulting in the injuries or death of another person, should be held accountable for their actions.
