One person died and another sustained serious injuries after the vehicle that the two were travelling in was involved in a fatal crash. The crash occurred in North Hollywood’s 170 Freeway on early Saturday morning as per the authorities on the scene.
The accident was reported a few minutes after 4 a.m. in the morning. The Crash occurred on the busy southbound 170 Freeway and just near Sherman Way. According to the Highway Patrol on site, the vehicle lost control and overturned. It eventually landed in a bush just beside the road.
The two occupants of the vehicle were rescued by first responders and given first aid by paramedics on site. They were later rushed to a nearby hospital while in critical condition. Unfortunately, one of the two occupants died while receiving treatment at the hospital. This was due to the serious injuries suffered in the crash.
The CHP said that it was not yet clear what really happened to cause the crash. They also added that it was still too early to tell if alcohol or even drugs was a causative factor. The accident led to the closure of two lanes on the busy Freeway. Investigations are still underway to determine what really happened.
