Roads Closed after Fiery Multi-Vehicle Crash on 5 Freeway near Burbank Boulevard in Burbank
BURBANK, CA (May 8, 2020) – Early Tuesday morning, a multi-vehicle crash on northbound 5 Freeway left debris scattered on the road.
According to police reports, the fiery crash was between two big-rigs and a pickup-truck. The incident reportedly shut down a stretch of the freeway for several hours. California Patrol Highway first received reports of the fiery crash around 1:50 a.m., near Burbank Boulevard.
As a result, the Burbank firefighters were called to the scene to put out the fire. Authorities later revealed that the crash did not lead to any injury.
However, the collision caused the axles to break off one of the big rigs.
