One person died after being ejected during a multi-vehicle crash that left the southbound side of the 14 Freeway closed in Lancaster Tuesday morning.
The crash occurred about 3:38 a.m. near Avenue M, said Officer Stephan Brandt with the California Highway Patrol.
It was unclear how many vehicles were involved in the crash, but two people were ejected during the collision, Brandt said.
One of the people ejected was pronounced dead at the scene, Brandt said.
The second person was transported to a hospital in unknown condition.
A SigAlert was issued for the closure of all lanes on the southbound side of the freeway just after 4 a.m., according to the CHP’s traffic incident site.
Aerial video from Sky5 showed one lane of traffic had reopened just before 6:30 a.m.
There was no word on when the rest of the lanes would open.
