A crash involving at least two vehicles out front of Eternal Valley Memorial Park and Mortuary Monday resulted in two ambulances being requested.
The incident was reported just after 1:30 p.m. on the 23200 block of Sierra Highway in front of the cemetery, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervisor Ed Pickett.
“They just requested a second ambulance,” Pickett said at 1:50 p.m., adding that it was unknown the extent of any patients’ injuries.
Traffic headed south on Sierra Highway was blocked as first responders worked to clear the scene.
Two patients were transported to the hospital — one by ambulance and one by a private vehicle — as a result of the incident, according to fire officials.
Firefighters were then called back to the scene around 2:30 p.m., as one of the vehicles involved in the crash had caught fire, fire officials said.
