Police Lights Crash

Two people were killed in a multi-vehicle Sherman Oaks crash early Saturday morning, including a 15-year-old boy, with one of the drivers arrested in connection to the incident. 

The crash was reported at about 12:10 a.m. on the eastbound 101 Freeway near Van Nuys Boulevard, according to Brian Humphrey, spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD).

One person was declared dead on scene, according to Humphrey.

A 15-year-old boy was transported to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries, according to a California Highway Patrol (CHP) report. 

Alcohol was determined to be a factor in the crash, according to investigators. 

A 2008 Honda was traveling east of Van Nuys Boulevard when the vehicle rear-ended a 2019 Isuzu box truck, according to the report. 

After the impact, both vehicles crashed into the center divider, according to CHP officials.

The box truck went over the center divider onto the westbound lanes and struck a 2017 Honda, investigators said.

“The collision with the center divider wall, and subsequent collision from the 2017 Honda, caused significant intrusion to the passenger compartment of the Isuzu,” the report said. 

Two passengers from the Isuzu suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision, according to the CHP.

The identities of both victims are unknown as of Saturday, pending notification of next of kin by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office.

A 20-year-old woman, the driver of the 2008 Honda, was transported to the hospital and later arrested in connection to the crash, according to investigators. 

Anyone with information about the crash is encouraged to call the CHP West Valley Office at 818-888-0980.
