One person died and two others were injured after a car drove into a narrow flood channel in Tujunga.
The accident happened around 3 p.m. Friday on La Tuna Canyon Road when a car carrying three men crashed into the canal, ejecting one of its occupants from the water.
The two men who survived managed to get out of the vehicle before the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived, the agency said. They suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital.
The man who was thrown from the car into the canal has died, the fire service said.
The channel was mostly dry, with about six inches of rainwater. It’s unclear if the storm played a role in the crash.
