PACOIMA (CBS) — Four people were injured, three critically, in a multi-car crash that reportedly involved a wrong-way motorist on the 5 Freeway in Pacoima.

Matt Spence of the Los Angeles City Fire Department said firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the scene at 7:48 a.m. Saturday where at least one person had to be extricated from a vehicle.

Spence said a total of four people, three of which were critical, were transported to local hospitals. The fourth victim was believed to be in fair condition.

CHP officers at the scene said a wrong-way driver had been involved, but no spokesperson was available for details.

Traffic was held up until the wreckage could be cleared at about 9:15 a.m.
