Detectives investigate early morning fatal crash

Lakewood police traffic detectives are investigating a fatal accident involving five vehicles that occurred at 7:15 a.m. on Nov. 13. The accident occurred on westbound Alameda Avenue at the intersection of Oak Street.

Lakewood police agents responded to the accident scene and determined that four westbound vehicles were stopped in the right hand lane at a red light. The fifth vehicle, a Ford pickup, rear-ended a minivan causing it to collide with vehicle in front of it, which resulted in a chain reaction with the other stationary vehicles, according to Steve Davis, public information officer with the department.

The minivan was occupied by Anna Huffman, 43, and a young boy. Huffman died on scene and the boy was transported to Children's Hospital for treatment of life threatening injuries. The driver of the pickup was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released.

Detectives continue their interviews with him.

The investigation will continue in an effort to determine the exact cause of the accident. Although there was no initial indication that drugs or alcohol were involved, investigators will await test results before making a final determination on any related charges.

Identities of all those involved are being withheld pending the notification of all family members and determination of any charges.
