1 killed in I-5 crash
Witness believes victim had seizure before accident, CHP officer says
One woman was killed after she crashed her vehicle into the center guardrail along the southbound Interstate 5 freeway, just north of Vista Del Lago, on Thursday.
The accident occurred at 12:06 p.m. Wednesday when the victim’s dark blue van hit the center divider.
A witness at the scene said it appeared the victim suffered a seizure before the crash, said California Highway Patrol Officer Eric Priessman.
Emergency personnel were called to the scene and tried to save the woman’s life before she was pronounced dead, according to Priessman.
“It looks like she passed away at the scene,” he said.
Several lanes were shut down for some time following the incident. They opened back up several hours later.
