A two-vehicle crash involving a big-rig on State Route 14 in Agua Dulce, injured four people, including two children, according to officials at the California Highway Patrol.
The crash between a Silver Camry and a big-rig occurred Thursday morning and caused the shutdown of SR-14, as the two children, including a one-and-a-half-year-old, were airlifted.
“There were four people in the Camry,” said Josh Greengard, CHP public information officer. “The two children, along with their mother (due to the children’s age), were airlifted to Children’s Hospital, while the male in the vehicle was transported by AMR (ambulance).”
Greengard said the call came in around 8:55 a.m. The crash occurred southbound on SR-14, north of Soledad Canyon. There were preliminary reports from witnesses citing street racing as the possible cause of the collison. However, Greengard said it’s still too early in the investigation to tell.
“We don’t know the cause of it, yet,” Greengard said. “It’s still under investigation. The Camry got overturned. There were reports of two high speed vehicles. But the officer on the scene doesn’t believe that was the case. He believes it was the 14 and people just travel fast on that freeway.”
