Fatal Sherman Oaks Crash 101 Freeway, Sepulveda Boulevard (12/04)

 Fatal Sherman Oaks Crash 101 Freeway, Sepulveda and Van Nuys (12/04) 1 Dead; 3-Vehicle Crash on 101 Freeway

SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. (Dec. 4, 2018) — A 40-year-old man died in a fiery multi-vehicle crash Tuesday morning on the northbound US 101 Freeway.

Two others were transported to hospitals in fair condition.

The California Highway Patrol reported the crash about 10:43 a.m. this morning. One person became trapped in a burning vehicle and died on the scene. It appears that a chain-reaction collision between three motorists left the one vehicle on its side. That vehicle caught on fire.

A witness named Ashley told 911 operators that she had the collision on her dash camera if they wanted to review what happened.

Police issued a SigAlert for the collision due to several lanes being closed.

Police are heading up an investigation into the cause of this crash and will assign liability.
