Man Pronounced Dead after Multi-Vehicle Accident near Beach Boulevard

BUENA PARK, CA (April 3, 2023) – Monday night, Alex Shilvock was hurt and a man was killed in a multi-car collision on 5 Freeway.

The incident happened just before 11:00 p.m., on the southbound lanes of the freeway just south of Beach Boulevard on March 27th.

Per reports, Shilvock was driving a white Toyota Matrix when he rear-ended a black Honda. Shilvock, his passenger, and the other driver were standing outside of their vehicles exchanging information when another driver struck all three victims, sending them into the roadway.
