Van Nuys, CA (October 30, 2023) – On Monday morning, traffic in the Van Nuys area was slowed after a fatal multi-vehicle accident on the northbound 405 Freeway.
According to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic record, the deadly collision involving three vehicles was reported around 4:45 a.m. near Sherman Way.
