At approximately 2:06 a.m. Friday morning, LAFD responded to a report of a traffic collision on the 101 HWY near Tampa ave. When units arrived, they found that a Prius had crashed into a semi truck and lost control striking a Jeep Cherokee and a Sprinter van. It is unclear how many people were injured in the crash. One patient was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. Eastbound HWY 101 was closed for approximately an hour following the crash and all lanes have since been opened.
It is unclear if speed, alcohol or possibly road construction were a factor in the crash. A SIG alert has been issued for the remainder of the investigation. CHP is handling the investigation
