A crash on the 101 Freeway Wednesday in the Van Nuys area left several people injured and temporarily shut down freeway lanes, a California Highway Patrol officer reported.
The crash on the eastbound 101 Freeway at the Van Nuys offramp occurred just before 4 a.m. and involved at least two vehicles, CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos said.
The crash resulted in several injuries, and Villalobos said the situation is a chaotic at the moment.
"We don't have an injury count yet," he said. "Also, there were multiple cars off to the side when our units arrived on the scene, and right now we don't yet know which cars were involved in the crash and which ones stopped to help."
There was no immediate response from the Los Angeles Fire Department to calls seeking information on those people injured in the crash.
Villalobos said all lanes were shut down at 4 a.m., as well as the Van Nuys offramp, and a SigAlert was declared by the CHP.
The CHP then reopened the two left lanes at 4:38 a.m. but the other four lanes and the Van Nuys offramp will remained closed at 7 a.m.
