A single-vehicle crash left one person dead and two people hospitalized Saturday in Sylmar.

Firefighters from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded at 12:47 a.m. to the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway east of Roxford Street, where they learned the vehicle had collided with a Caltrans forklift, LAPD spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

Two men in their 30s were trapped underneath the vehicle. Firefighters were able to free one and the other man freed himself, Humphrey said.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the two injured men were taking to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No Caltrans workers were injured.

A Sigalert, issued at 1:34 a.m. shutting down all westbound lanes at Polk Street, was canceled at 11:43 a.m., the CHP said.
