Authorities say a woman has been killed in a fiery multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 405 in Los Angeles that briefly shut down the freeway and backed up rush hour traffic.
The California Highway
Patrol Officer Leland Tang says an occupant of one car died in the
chain-reaction crash Friday morning in the North Hills area.
One person has been hospitalized with minor to moderate injuries.
Three completely scorched vehicles are wedged up against the freeway divider. Two other vehicles nearby were also involved.
All lanes in both directions were briefly shut down while crews extinguished the fire.
All northbound lanes are moving again. Officials have opened one lane on the southbound side.
