Two-Car Crash along Interstate 5 Left One Dead

CAMP PENDLETON, CA (July 29, 2022) – Saturday afternoon, an unidentified person died in a two-vehicle collision along Interstate 5.

The accident occurred on July 16th, around 2:09 p.m., along the stretch of Interstate 5 that passes through Camp Pendleton.

The circumstances surrounding the collision remain unclear. However, it is known that two vehicles, one a minivan, collided.

By the time emergency responders arrived, there were at least three to four vehicles pulled over, their drivers trying to render aid to the driver of the minivan.

Despite the life-saving attempts, responding officials pronounced one person dead from the crash.

At this time, police have withheld the deceased’s identity pending notification of next of kin.

The crash resulted in a heavy traffic backup, causing most vehicles to re-route and use the right-hand shoulder to exit the freeway.

In the meantime, an active investigation is underway.
