Two crashes, one involving a police officer, shut down a stretch of Laurel Canyon in Studio City Tuesday evening.
A blue sedan crashed into an LAPD motorcycle officer responding to a separate crash on Laurel Canyon, about a quarter mile away from where the motorcycle and sedan collided.
The officer’s condition was not immediately known. It was also unclear what caused the crash to which the officer was responding.
As of 5:45 p.m., the roadway connecting the valley to the west side was still shuttered while the investigations continued.
Laurel Canyon is closed between Mulholland Drive and Ventura Boulevard. An estimated time for the roadway's reopening was not available.
