The CHP declared a SigAlert on the 118 Freeway in this general area.
Rush-hour traffic on the eastbound 118 Freeway was snarled Thursday afternoon near the southbound 5 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley after a multi-vehicle accident, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol said one of the vehicles in the crash was a big rig that jack-knifed and ended up on the embankment.

Two people received injuries that were not life-treatening, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. 

Officers were at the scene investigating. No additional details were immediately available.
