A multiple vehicle crash in Redondo Beach left four cars mangled and eight people hurt Wednesday as authorities asked drivers to avoid the area.
The crash occurred at Pacific Coast Highway and Torrance Boulevard around 3:30 p.m.
A vehicle heading west on Torrance Boulevard didn't stop at a red light, leading to a chain reaction crash. In all, six vehicles were involved.
Eight people were taken to the hospital, but the severity of their injuries was not clear.
PCH was closed in both directions at the intersection.
