One person was killed Tuesday morning as a result of a head-on Sierra Highway crash, officials said.
Around 6:20 a.m. Tuesday, first responders received reports of a head-on traffic collision on Sierra Highway near Penman Road in Acton, said Officer Eric Priessman with the California Highway Patrol Newhall Area Office.
“It came out as a traffic collision with persons trapped,” said Austin Bennett, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
When crews arrived on scene, they reported that one person was trapped, Bennett said.
“Two trauma patients were transported to the hospital,” Bennett said.
However, one of the parties transported, described as an elderly male, later died at an area hospital, Priessman said.
As of Tuesday morning, the fatal crash is still under investigation and the identity of the decedent is unknown, according to CHP officials.
