One person was killed and another person was injured Sunday in a wrong-way crash on the San Diego (405) Freeway in West Los Angeles, authorities said.
The crash on the northbound freeway, at Getty Center Drive, occurred a little after 2:25 a.m., the California Highway Patrol reported.
Paramedics dispatched to the scene at 2:31 a.m. rushed one person to an area hospital, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. That person’s condition was not immediately known.
A vehicle reportedly was going northbound on the freeway and then made a U-turn, just south of the Ventura (101) Freeway.
It was later reported that a dark-colored SUV was going southbound in the northbound carpool lanes, when it crashed into another vehicle just south of Getty Center Drive. Several other vehicles then pulled over to the right shoulder.
A representative from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office was called to the scene at 5:45 a.m.
