A four-vehicle traffic collision on a 405 Freeway exit ramp in North Hills injured at least one person who had to be extricated from a vehicle Tuesday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Los Angeles Fire Department officers responded to the scene at around 4:20 p.m. at the Roscoe Boulevard exit ramp off the southbound 405 Freeway.

Aerial footage from Sky5 showed four visibly damaged vehicles stopped on the rain-soaked road as firefighters worked on the scene to free a victim trapped in one of the vehicles that had been pushed off the roadway.

Another vehicle appeared to have spun 180-degrees and stopped facing another vehicle head-on.

The unidentified victim was moved onto a gurney and hospitalized with an unknown condition.

The cause of the collision was not immediately available. It is unknown if weather conditions contributed to the incident.

Heavy rain pounded Southern California all day Tuesday, soaking the roads and prompting several road closures and evacuation orders.

All lanes of the Roscoe Boulevard exit ramp were closed for around an hour due to the collision, according to CHP.
