In a tragic incident that took place in Acton, California, a two-vehicle collision claimed the life of Tiffany Grimes, aged 53. The accident occurred early last Saturday on the Antelope 14 Freeway, near Ward Road.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the crash happened at approximately 3:56 a.m. on June 1st. Officers arrived at the northbound lanes of the 14 Freeway at Ward Road to find one individual with critical injuries.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department’s paramedics were also present at the crash site and declared the injured person dead. The identity of the deceased was initially withheld by the Los Angeles County Sheriff Coroner’s office pending notification of next of kin.

A traffic alert was initiated at 4:30 a.m., resulting in the temporary closure of the two right-most lanes of the freeway as the authorities conducted their preliminary investigation into the incident.

Determining the cause of the collision and the party at fault is currently the focus of ongoing investigations by law enforcement officials.
