A 25-year-old woman died early Monday morning when a sheriffs patrol car apparently struck her stopped vehicle on the northbound 405 freeway.
Lisa Hylla, a North Hills resident, was driving a 2007 Toyota Scion when the vehicle collided with a 1984 Toyota pickup truck driven by a couple in their 60s Monday, May 3, according to the California Highway Patrol. The truck, which was stopped on the freeway, was then apparently hit by a sheriffs vehicle. The accident occurred close to the Devonshire Street exit in the San Fernando Valley.
According to reports, Hylla was then thrown into the southbound traffic, and authorities are still trying to determine the chain of events that resulted in her death.
The elderly couple and two deputies in the sheriffs vehicle were taken to a hospital and treated for their injuries, according to authorities.
