5 Died in Fiery Crash

Mere crash could cause a devastating consequence. But a fiery crash could be too much to handle.

In Mission Viejo, five bodies burned beyond recognition were found inside a toppled SUV down a steep embankment on the southbound I-5 freeway at La Paz Road.

Authorities failed to identify the victims due to their condition. However, they revealed that the SUV crashed into a sign post before turning over two to three times down the hill, slammed a fence, hit a tree then engulfed in fire.

A Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigations Team arrived at the scene to conduct an in-depth analysis of the crash.

Unconfirmed report was gathered that the crash could have been due to a tire blow up.

In 2005, out of more than 35,000 fatal car crashes, about 550 involved deaths due to burn injuries while around 3,300 people received non-lethal burn injuries.

As car could catch fire easily, it is advised that you be as cautious as you can to prevent incidents like this.

Should you be involved in a burning car accident, you should hire a personal injury attorney to file a case against whoever is or are negligent.
