One Dead in 118 Freeway Crash; Husband of Victim Arrested

PORTER RANCH (CNS) – A 31-year-old woman was killed in a fiery multi-vehicle crash near Porter Ranch, police said Friday. Police arrested her husband, who is suspected of driving under the influence.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol were called at 11:42 p.m. Thursday to the westbound Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway and Reseda Boulevard where they found several cars had been in a collision, said CHP Officer Elizabeth Kravig.

According to multiple broadcast reports, police arrested the husband at the scene but the CHP could not confirm this.

The couple was returning from a graduation party with their three children when their Lexus sedan smashed into an embankment, severing a fuel line and causing the car to burst into flames, Fox 11 reported. The Lexus crash caused a second collision involving at least three other vehicles.

Kravig said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the husband and children were taken to a hospital in unknown conditions.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
