A person was killed Tuesday evening in a crash involving at least two vehicles near a freeway off-ramp in Norwalk.
The crash occurred a little after 8:40 p.m. on Rosecrans Avenue near an off-ramp to the southbound San Gabriel River (605) Freeway, according to a watch commander at the sheriff’s Norwalk Station.
A person was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.
Firefighters and paramedics dispatched to the location did not take anyone to a hospital, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.
Although the investigation is being handled by the sheriff’s Norwalk Station, the California Highway Patrol said witnesses reported to them that a Cadillac Escalade ran a red light and crashed into a Honda Accord. A man inside the Honda was then thrown from the car.
At 9:46 p.m. the CHP closed off the Rosecrans Avenue off-ramp to the southbound San Gabriel River Freeway and the Rosecrans Avenue off-ramp from the eastbound Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway for an unknown duration, said CHP Officer Patrick Kimball.
