One person died and five others were injured Sunday evening in a two-vehicle crash in Pacoima in which one of the vehicles hit an apartment building.

The crash happened outside 10460 Laurel Canyon Blvd. around 8:35 p.m., according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.

One person died at the scene, Prange said. The person’s gender and age were not yet available. The deceased’s name will be withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Two people were temporarily trapped in their vehicle but were later freed by firefighters, Prange said.

A total of five people were hurt in the crashes — two men and three juveniles, he said. All five were transported to a hospital.

Another juvenile, who was in the building when it was struck by a vehicle, was evaluated by paramedics but did not require additional treatment, he said.
