A person was killed and paramedics rushed three people to area hospitals from a traffic crash Friday involving at least a half-dozen vehicles — including two big rigs — on the Golden State (5) Freeway near Dodger Stadium, in Elysian Park.
A 67-year-old woman, a 29-year-old woman and an 11-year-old girl were transported to area hospitals. Their conditions were unknown, said Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Four other people injured in the crash declined transport, said Prange, adding that “one patient who was transported required extrication by firefighters with hydraulic rescue tools.”
Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched at 8:07 a.m. to the southbound freeway at Stadium Way, said Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
A representative from the coroner’s office was called out to the scene at 8:55 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
All traffic lanes were open by about 12:45 p.m.
The cause of the crash was not immediately known.
