According to LAFD, the crash happened at about 5:14 p.m. in the 107oo block of West Olympic Boulevard, just east of Overland Avenue. It was not immediately clear what led up to the crash.
LAFD said there were only two vehicles involved in the crash, though photos from the scene also showed a third that officials said was merely stopped nearby.
The Los Angeles Police Department was conducting an investigation into the fatal crash and warned that one or more lanes of roads in the area were expected to remain closed as work continued.
