According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in Porter Ranch resulted in at least eight people getting injuries and the loss of two teenagers’ life.
Authorities said today that a boy aged 16 and a girl aged 14 were killed in a collision involving three vehicles that took place in the Porter Ranch neighbourhood of Los Angeles. The accident also resulted in the injuries of eight other individuals.

According to the Reports, the collision took place somewhere about 5:52 p.m. close to 11001 N. Reseda Blvd.
Blake Frady, a witness, described the scene as follows: “I was just inside when I heard the tremendous bang and I could feel it up in the attic. I ran racing outside, and there were two cars hit head on each hit passenger side utterly smashed.”
The driver of a black Honda CRV that was carrying four people allegedly entered the path of oncoming traffic, causing the vehicle to collide with two other cars.
The first vehicle was a Volkswagen Sedan driven by a lady in her 30s, while the second vehicle was a Toyota Venza with an adult and two children on board.
