Traffic on McBean Parkway was stopped for nearly an hour after a non-injury crash took down a light post near the entrance to CalArts, around 3:20 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
The two vehicles involved in the crash both sustained heavy damage, with one ending up on the sidewalk, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Lt. James Royal.
The crash occurred when one vehicle traveling east on McBean Parkway was struck another vehicle attempting to make a left turn onto the California Institute of the Arts campus, said Royal.
There were no reports of injuries.
City maintenance crews and Southern California Edison staff worked to clear the road of debris as deputies rerouted traffic.
One fire engine responded to the crash, according to Fire Department officials, but left once it became clear that neither of the vehicles involved had caught fire and none of the occupants required medical treatment.
No arrests were made in connection with the incident, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.
