According to investigators from the California Highway Patrol, a 21 year-old woman driving drunk on the wrong way on Pomona Freeway in California is responsible for the deaths of six people in a multi-car accident.
In the early morning hours of this past Sunday, February 9, 2014, a 21 year-old woman driving red Chevrolet Camaro drifted into the opposite lane of Pomona Freeway. The woman’s car slammed head-on into a red Ford truck. The details of the ensuing pile-up are not yet clear as the accident reconstruction team of the California Highway Patrol is working to ascertain what exactly happened during the auto accident.
The results of the auto crash are devastating. The California Highway Patrol reports that four people were pronounced dead at the scene of the car accident. Two others died in area hospitals.
