Multi car crashes  are, unfortunately, all too common on our Los Angeles freeways.  This particular crash occurred on the 170 or “Hollywood Freeway” which merges into the 101 and 134 freeways in and around the area of wreck.  This type of interchange is most often the site of these accidents.  The legal cause is usually an initial unsafe lane change in combination with traveling at an unsafe speed, which causes the pile up.  For cars, trucks and SUVs, occupants can often survive these crashes but, for a motorcyclist, they can be deadly as proven here.
