Gardena, CA (September 12, 2020) – A motor vehicle accident in the Gardena area claimed the lives of two people early Saturday morning.
Just after 4:20 a.m., on September 12, the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of an auto accident on the Harbor Freeway. Reports show that a vehicle was traveling the wrong way on the Harbor Freeway after entering the highway from the 182nd Street onramp. Once on the road, the vehicle traveled south at approximately 80 miles per hour before crashing into a northbound vehicle.
The impact of the crash caused one of the vehicles to overturn and come to rest on its roof. Two victims involved in the crash were fatally injured. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident by responding officers.
At this time, no other injuries were announced as a result of this collision. Investigations surrounding the crash are currently ongoing.
