A total of three vehicles were involved in the crash, which happened in the late evening hours at approximately 11 p.m. at the crossroads of Barham and Cahuenga Boulevards, not far from the 101 Freeway.
Six people required hospital treatment for moderate-to-critical wounds after the wreck. A 25-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the accident scene.

No matter if a California resident has been hurt in a car crash or lost a loved one in a collision, it is not uncommon for car accidents to give rise to civil claims for financial damages. These personal injury or wrongful death claims can be filed by injured victims and family members who have been harmed financially and emotionally by an auto collision. Damage claims may include requests for reimbursements for costs of medical care, as well as any final expenses for the deceased. Pursuing compensation for attorneys fees, lost wages, disabilities and other kinds of damages may also be possible.
