MISSION HILLS (CBSLA) — At least five big rigs and two vehicles got tangled up Friday on the northbound 5 Freeway at Van Nuys Boulevard in Mission Hills.

The crash was first reported at about 5:15 a.m. blocking four middle lanes of the freeway. Video from Chopper 2 shows the crash scene stretching for at least a half mile.

A small tanker trunk was left next to one of the big rigs, which was in middle lanes with a vehicle wedged beneath it. Half a mile up the freeway, another big rig was left jackknifed in lanes. Two more semis were left on the shoulder of the freeway.

Injuries were reported, but it was not known how many and to what extent.
