Just as rush hour was beginning for the afternoon, a six-vehicle crash involving a dump truck with a punctured fuel tank forced the California Highway Patrol to close all lanes except the car pool lane and issue a SigAlert at 4:37 p.m. this afternoon. As of 5:20 p.m., units were still on scene according to an LA Fire Department spokesperson. Three people were injured with one 24-year-old woman taken to the hospital in serious condition.
