Early on Monday, a tragic accident took place on the 710 Freeway in north Long Beach, resulting in five fatalities, one of whom was a 15-year-old, as reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

Officer Angelia Gonzales, spokesperson for the CHP, stated that the fatal single-vehicle incident occurred just past 4 a.m., at the intersection of the 710 and 91 Freeway. Among the car’s occupants, five, including the driver, lost their lives, while another was rushed to a nearby hospital. The patient’s status remains undisclosed.

The CHP revealed that four of the passengers weren’t using their seatbelts during the accident, leading to some being thrown out of the vehicle. Officers at the scene deduced that the 2011 Hyundai Sonata hit an impact attenuator — a device designed to lessen crash energy — and subsequently ignited.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office identified 15-year-old George Dobbs as one of the victims. The investigation into the crash is ongoing, and Gonzales has urged anyone who may have witnessed the event to contact investigators at the CHP South L.A. station.
