The accident left the three people in the Explorer ejected from their car. One of the victims was reported dead on the scene, and the other two left severely injured.
The accident first started around 1:40 a.m. The people inside the Ford were heading east when the driver of the vehicle lost control on the freeway near Hotel Circle. According to the California Highway Patrol, the car had flipped and caused the victims to be ejected from their seats. The three of them were found lying in the road.

One of the vehicles is said to have been heavily damaged according to the California Highway Patrol. The information available on the other drivers is little to none. There are no news on their injuries or the make and models of what cars they were driving. All, that is clear, is that they were in a crash caused by this incident.
The Eastbound 8 Freeway was shut down by local authorities temperately at Taylor Street.
