Crash closes southbound 405 Freeway in Van Nuys


By Samatha Schaefer, December 4, 2013

 All southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway at Sherman Way in Van Nuys were closed Wednesday after a crash involving five cars and a big rig shortly before 9:30 a.m., authorities said. 

The northbound far left and carpool lanes were also closed.

About 40 Los Angeles firefighters responded and had set up a triage area to evaluate crash victims, Fire Department spokesman Shawn Lenske said.

No additional information on the cause of the crash or the nature of the injuries was immediately available.
