The collision happened near the 405 Freeway interchange around 5:15 a.m. and involved four or five vehicles, according to California Highway Patrol's incident log. The county coroner later identified the victim as Yessenia Camacho of Lancaster.

Sky5 video showed a car with heavy front-end damage stopped across two lanes. Another vehicle appeared to have crashed into a railing on the side of the freeway.

Officials blocked several lanes as they assessed the scene, causing delays during rush-hour traffic.

The SigAlert that was initially expected to last through 10 a.m. was canceled by around 7:30 a.m., CHP said.

Authorities provided no further details about the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Down in Malibu, another fatal crash triggered a nearly six-hour closure of all lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway on Friday.
