The vehicles involved in the crash, which initially occurred in the No. 3 lane, were described as a Toyota Corolla, a Hyundai Accent and an unknown vehicle.
The SigAlert was issued at 5:17 a.m., and the CHP said it would be in effect for an hour.
About 5:30 a.m., the CHP indicated that officers were planning to open the carpool and No. 1 and 2 lanes on the southbound 170 in 10 minutes, but Los Angeles police are on scene, and the investigation remains ongoing. The offramp to the southbound 170 at Burbank Boulevard was closed.
