Fatal crash closes transition between 134 and 5 freeways near Glendale

Two separate fatal crashes closed parts of the 5 Freeway near Glendale on Monday, with one accident threatening to affect early-morning commuters.

There were no details immediately available about the first incident, but the California Highway Patrol said the accident was reported at 12:06 a.m. near Colorado Boulevard.

The second crash, which occurred about 2:15 a.m., involved multiple vehicles and at least one fatality after a car went down an embankment on a transition road from the eastbound 134 Freeway to the southbound 5 Freeway, according to initial CHP reports.

No information about the victims was immediately available.

TV video showed the roadway partially reopened just after 5:30 a.m., but emergency crews remained on scene.

A Los Angeles woman died Saturday morning after the pickup she was riding in rolled down an embankment at the same freeway interchange. Isabel Robles, 49, was a passenger in the truck, which skidded across the transition road between the northbound 5 Freeway and eastbound 134 and hit a guardrail and curb before rolling.
