Fatal Crash In Sun Valley Leaves 1 Dead

The fatal crash that killed an unidentified man on the Hollywood 170 Freeway Thursday morning occurred around 4:56 a.m. 

CHP reported that an unidentified driver was blocking the HOV lane after it crashed into the center divider.

As a result, an oncoming vehicle then crashed into them on the southbound side of the freeway. 

This took place near Roscoe Boulevard and the two vehicles involved were a Chevrolet and Toyota. 

A passerby called 911 to report the incident as they saw a man lying in the No. 2 lane. 

Due to multiple lanes being blocked off by responders, authorities issued a SigAlert. 

Additionally, the eastbound entrance from Roscoe Boulevard to the southbound 170 was also shut down. 

The crash remains under investigation.
