A nine-car collision left one person dead over the weekend in Santa Monica.

According to the Santa Monica Fire Department (SMFD), on Saturday around 5:45 p.m. firefighters responded to a report of a multiple vehicle traffic collision on the eastbound Interstate 10 Freeway near the Lincoln Boulevard overpass. Upon arrival, the SMFD reported it found nine vehicles involved with one overturned.

“After rapidly assessing the scene and triaging all parties involved, it was determined there were four (4) patients; tragically one (1) was pronounced dead at the scene, one (1) was critically injured and transported to a local trauma center,” said SMFD Public Information Officer⁣ Captain Patrick Nulty in a press release.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has not yet released the identity of the victim.

In addition, the SMFD reported one patient with minor injuries was transported to a local hospital, and a fourth patient who suffered minor injuries was treated and released at scene.

According to the SMFD, a total of 27 firefighters and paramedics along with officers from the Santa Monica Police Department, California Highway Patrol (CHP), and McCormick Ambulance worked to stabilize the incident scene, provide care to the injured and transportation to the hospital.

The cause of the incident is under investigation by the CHP. A CHP spokesperson told the Santa Monica Mirror Monday afternoon that there are currently no further details about the cause of the collision, including whether or not alcohol or narcotics may have been involved
