Television footage showed at least four vehicles were involved in the crash, which California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos said was reported just before 6 a.m. at Winnetka Avenue.

At least one of the vehicles rolled over, Villalobos said.

Firefighters and paramedics evaluated the injured at the scene. It was not immediately known if anyone required transport to a hospital.

Traffic was briefly diverted at Winnetka Avenue, but the CHP began opening some lanes of the freeway about 45 minutes after the crash. All lanes were open just after 7 a.m.
