Two-car collision in Brentwood leaves four people injured; Sunset Boulevard closed in both directions

A collision Tuesday afternoon left two adults and two children injured and prompted the closure of Sunset Boulevard in Brentwood, authorities said.

The two-car crash occurred shortly before 3:45 p.m. in the 13100 block of Sunset Boulevard near the base of Mandeville Canyon Road,  Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The crash involved a red coupe and a silver compact SUV on a sharp curve of Sunset Boulevard, which was slick from afternoon rain, Humphrey said.

Initial reports indicated that the crash involved five people, with three in critical condition, but officials later lowered the number of people involved and declined to provide further details on the condition of those involved.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
