multi car crash in lancaster

LANCASTER, CA (March 17, 2024)A woman lost her life in Lancaster on Saturday following a multi-car collision attributed to a driver allegedly running a red light. The accident occurred shortly before 9:45 p.m. at the intersection of Avenue J-8 and 20th Street East, as reported by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.


A Mitsubishi Outlander, proceeding southbound on 20th Street East, reportedly disregarded a red traffic signal and collided with a westbound Infiniti G35 on Avenue J-8. The impact caused severe damage, leading to the partial ejection of a female passenger from the Infiniti, who was subsequently declared deceased after being transported to a local hospital.


The car crash in Lancaster left several passengers from both vehicles trapped, necessitating emergency services’ intervention. While the investigation continues, initial findings suggest that speed may not have been a contributing factor, with authorities exploring the potential involvement of alcohol or drugs.
