A woman was killed and three children were injured Saturday in a two-vehicle crash on the Golden State (5) Freeway in Sylmar.

All four victims were inside the same vehicle on the southbound I-5, near the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway. An 8-year-old boy was critically injured and paramedics rushed two other children in fair condition to an area hospital, said Amy Bastman of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the crash scene at 9:55 a.m., Bastman said.

A representative from the coroner’s office was called out to the scene at 11:51 a.m.

The crash involved a silver sedan and a silver SUV, possible a Toyota 4-Runner, the California Highway Patrol reported, and at least one person was trapped inside a vehicle.

The southbound No. 1 and No. 2 lanes of the Golden State (5) Freeway were closed at 10:20 a.m. and re-opened at 2:13 p.m., the CHP reported.
