1 Killed in Fiery Multi-Vehicle Crash on 5 Freeway in Sun Valley | 9-18-2017

Two Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies were a part of a multi-vehicle crash that killed one person and stopped traffic on the southbound 5 Freeway in Sun Valley for hours Friday morning. According to reports by California Highway Patrol Officer Elizabeth Kravig, the crash was reported at about 3:10 a.m. A Honda CRV had stalled in the carpool lane when a Honda sedan struck it. The driver in the CRV had exited the vehicle and attempted to warn others prior to the collision. The sedan was then struck by a Sherrif’s Department patrol vehicle occupied by two deputies and two inmates. No one in the patrol vehicle was injured. Not long after this collision, the sedan burst into flames. The occupant of the sedan, who has yet to be identified, reportedly died at the scene. A video from Sky5 also showed that a fourth vehicle was involved in the crash and came to a stop on the right shoulder. There was no word on any other injuries that were caused as a result of the crash. A SigAlert was issued for the closure of the southbound 5 Freeway, near the 170 Freeway at around 3:30 a.m.

The CHP began moving traffic on the 5 Freeway again, at about 9:30 a.m. Around 1:30 p.m. the entire roadway was reportedly reopened.
