One dead in car, big rig collision on 101 Freeway in Studio City


April 3, 2014

STUDIO CITY - A person was killed today in a collision between a sedan and a big rig on the southbound Hollywood (101) Freeway in Studio City, authorities said.

The Lexus sedan collided with the rear of the big rig just north of Vineland Avenue at 3:14 a.m, said California Highway Patrol Officer Alex Rubio.

Rubio said the collision occurred as the nearby site of an earlier accident was being cleared. That accident was a collision between a box truck and a pickup truck, also in the southbound lanes. There were no injuries in that accident.

All southbound lanes of the 101 were closed after the fatal collision, with traffic diverted to the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway. A single lane of the southbound 101 was opened about 4:15 a.m., and the remaining lanes were reopened about 6:35 a.m., the CHP reported.
