At least one person — possibly a child — died Sunday evening in a crash on the northbound Antelope Valley (14) Freeway in Santa Clarita.

The crash happened at Newhall Avenue about 6:35 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The crash temporarily blocked the Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 lanes.

There was no immediate confirmation from the CHP that the fatal victim was a child, but the CHP’s incident report page indicated that a child was without a pulse.

It was unclear if there were other injuries.

The coroner’s office was notified of the death, CHP Elizabeth Kravig said.

A SigAlert was issued by the CHP at 6:49 p.m. The four lanes were expected to remain closed until at least 9 p.m., the CHP reported.
