Fatalities among Los Angeles Freeway Crash

GORMAN, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol has reopened a southbound stretch of the Grapevine freeway pass north of Los Angeles after a crash that killed two people and injured nine, including a child.

Officer Robert Rodriguez says at least three cars were involved in a crash at around 5 a.m. Tuesday on the southbound Interstate 5 in Gorman.

Two people died.

Los Angeles County fire officials say four people were airlifted to hospitals in critical condition and five had minor injuries. At least one of the victims is a child.

All southbound lanes of the Grapevine were closed, causing a mile-long backup. However, the CHP has reopened the shoulder and cars are beginning to creep through the pass again.
