One person was killed Saturday morning in a three-vehicle crash on the eastbound Ventura (101) Freeway in Sherman Oaks.

The crash, which included a semi truck that overturned, was reported at 12:10 a.m. near the Van Nuys Boulevard exit, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

In addition to the person killed, five others were injured, Humphrey said. Their conditions were not disclosed.

Details of what led up to the crash were not available.

The crash spread debris across lanes in both directions of the freeway and prompted a SigAlert for the east- and westbound Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes until further notice.
