Teenager arrested after deadly crash in Woodland Hills

Police arrested a 17-year-old boy accused of triggering a multi-car crash in Woodland Hills that killed one person and injured three others late Friday night.

The name of the teenager was not released by Los Angeles police who say the 17-year-old was driving westbound on Ventura Boulevard in a black 2019 Mercedes-Benz C300 when he failed to stop for a red light at Winnetka Avenue and hit the driver's side door of a dark green Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

The force of the impact caused the Mercedes to go into oncoming traffic where it collided with a blue Lexus and a silver Ford Expedition.

At about 10 p.m., emergency crews were called out to the 20100 block of Ventura Boulevard near Winnetka where they found two people suffering from serious injuries, a third from minor injuries, and a fourth person -- the driver of the pickup, was declared dead at the scene, the L.A. Fire Department said.

Authorities did not release the identity of the victim killed in the crash.

The teenage driver and his passenger were taken to a local hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

No additional details were released by authorities. The investigation is ongoing.
