WOODLAND HILLS, LOS ANGELES - A suspected street race caused a six-car crash along Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities said the crash was reported around 4 p.m. on Ventura Boulevard and Premiere Hills Drive.

A witness said they saw two cars involved in a street race speed by on the road right before crashing into multiple other vehicles.

Eyewitness News reporter Chelsea Edwards and her photographer heard the crash in the distance while they were a block away from the scene. They saw two black cars traveling at least 80 mph on the road.

Another witness said he was making a left turn on the street and was barely missed by one of the cars flying past him. He said he believed the drivers were going about 100 mph, but the police would determine the exact speed.

Lynette Williams, who was in one of the vehicles involved in the crash, said it felt like a "big impact." She was driving a white car that was hit by a car that was spinning out from the initial crash.

No one was killed in the crash, but some people suffered minor injuries. No one was transported to a hospital, authorities said.

At least two lanes on Ventura Boulevard were closed off on both sides of the road to investigate the multiple crash sites.
