One person was killed Thursday morning in a car crash that and ended up at the bottom of the concrete-walled Tujunga Wash.

The vehicle, a 2008 black Cadillac, apparently went off the 101 Freeway, plowed through some trees and bushes before crashing through a chain-link fence and ending up on its side in the bottom of the wash.

The driver died at the scene. The victim has been identified as a 31-year-old male from Woodland Hills, says California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash. It is not clear what caused the vehicle to veer off the 101 Freeway that sent it into the Wash. Another vehicle may have been involved in the accident.

Fire Station 86 discovered the vehicle around 7:15 a.m. By 7:30 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department tweeted that a fatal crash had occurred at the 4300 block of Vineland Ave.

The Tujunga Wash, where the car crashed, is considered a tributary of the Los Angeles River. It’s a 13-mile long stream and located just south of the crash site.

The police didn’t have any more information and have not released the name of the victim. The crash is still under investigation.
