Injuries were reported after four vehicles were involved in a chain-reaction crash that prompted the hourslong closure of a South Los Angeles street Friday morning.

The collision, described as a hit-and-run, occurred shortly after 8 a.m. near the intersection of East Gage Avenue and South Central Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol’s incident log.

CHP did not state how many people had been hurt or the extent of their injuries.

Four vehicles sustained major damage in the crash, aerial video over the scene showed.

All eastbound lanes of Gage Avenue were shut down for nearly three hours while the scene was cleaned up and the crash was investigated. CHP canceled the SigAlert and reopened the roadway at about 11 a.m.

It was not immediately known whether rain was a factor, but the collision appeared to have occurred on a wet roadway, according to the video.

No information about the hit-and-run was immediately available.
