1 critically injured in 4-vehicle Lake Balboa crash that takes down power poles

LAKE BALBOA — A person critically injured in a four-vehicle collision in Lake Balboa was being treated at a regional trauma center early Friday.

The person was trapped in a vehicle that was overturned and was freed by Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters, department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The vehicle knocked down a utility pole, with multiple wires falling to the ground, and struck a commercial building, causing water to flood the inside of the structure, Humphrey said.

Firefighters were called at 11:08 p.m. Thursday to 17730 Vanowen St., between White Oak and Encino avenues, Humphrey said.

The overturned vehicle ended up a quarter-mile from the site of initial impact after knocking down a second power pole, according to a report from the scene.
