Los Angeles, CA (October 15, 2023) – On Saturday night, October 14, a multi-vehicle wreck occurred on the eastbound 118 Freeway at the Reseda exit in Porter Ranch, per local authorities.
One car was apparently stopped on the eastbound 118’s first lane when it was hit by another vehicle, causing it to burst into flames.
Several cars swerved to avoid hitting debris on the road. Serious injuries were not reported, though EMTs appeared to transfer at least one person from the scene.
The suspect driver fled the scene, but troopers with the California Highway Patrol located the fleeing driver, administered a field sobriety test, and subsequently arrested him.
An investigation remains active in the meantime, and witnesses were asked to contact the CHP if they had any other information.
