This post has been corrected. See note at bottom for details.

A multi-vehicle collision Friday evening in the Sepulveda Pass has left at least four people injured and closed Sepulveda Boulevard in both directions at Mountaingate Drive while officials investigate the crash, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Three of the victims are in critical condition and two have life-threatening injuries, said Matt Spence, a Fire Department spokesman. The fourth person is in serious condition, he said.

There were early reports that the collision was caused by a wrong-way driver, but that has not confirmed, Spence said.
