You could run GTA with the verify command, which will check your game for missing/corrupt files and re-acquire them. This is usually a little less of a headache than a full blown reinstall.

I typed up a guide on how to do this in an older thread found here:
http://gtaforums.com/topic/873019-gta-ingame-freeze/

 

A buddy of mine was having a very similar issue in one of the earlier missions. It turned out to be corrupted game files. This may or may not work for you, but this is how I got his copy up and running:

Navigate to the game's root folder
For Steam copy: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V

For retail/box copy: C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V OR C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V

 

Once you've located the directory, create a new text document in the root folder (where the main executable / .exe is located) and call it commandline.txt

Open commandline.txt with notepad and add the following exactly as shown:
-verify

 

Save the changes via File>Save or Ctrl+S and then close the document.

 

Now when you run the game you should get a window that looks like this:

Untitled.png

 

Allow the process to check your game and download any needed files.

Once finished, delete commandline.txt from the game directory and run the game as normal.

Again, this may or may not work for you but it solved a week-long headache for my friend.

Have you installed any mods, edited any files, changed your hardware configuration, etc since the last time it ran without any issues?

If memory serves me correct, last mod I installed before I started seeing issues was this:

 

https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/hummer-h1

 

Although I don't recall the game crashing the day that I installed this mod. Is there any way to get back the original patriot .yft and .ytd files?

So as I was creating the text file, I noticed I already had a "commandline.txt" file in my root folder. I deleted it and I'm launching the game now to see if it will run now that the file is deleted. If it crashes again, I will try your method. Thanks for the help so far!

Just played about 40 minutes non-stop with no issues, whereas before I couldn't go more than 5-10 without the game crashing. So I guess that must have fixed it. It's also running as smooth as it used to.

 

Do you think I should run the commandline.txt to make sure everything is alright, or am I good to go?

If you run the commandline.txt it'll revert your Hummer H1 mod, so I wouldn't run it unless the crashes pop up again. It sounds like you're good to go at this point. Glad you got it figured out :)
