SR 126 Lanes Reopen Near Castaic Junction After Fatal Crash Prompts Closure

State Route 126 has reopened near the Los Angeles-Ventura county border after a deadly crash prompted officials to block traffic in both directions Saturday morning.

The lanes reopened around 11:40 a.m. after California Highway Patrol’s Moorpark division tweeted the closure of all lanes between Castaic Junction and Piru an hour before.

The incident happened on the westbound side of the highway about a half-mile west of the county line, CHP said just after 7 a.m. It involved two vehicles and possibly a third one, the agency said.

CHP initially shut down just the westbound lanes, urging motorists to avoid the 126 and use State Route 118 instead.

Highway Patrol and fire units responded to the scene as debris from at least one vehicle lay scattered across the highway, images released by CHP show.

Authorities provided no further details about the collision.
