LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say that a teenager who survived a car crash with a big rig was killed as he tried to escape traffic on the freeway where the accident happened.

The incident on Interstate 5 in Los Angeles was reported to the California Highway Patrol at 4:20 a.m. Saturday.

The 18-year-old was a passenger in a Honda Accord that crashed with the truck, and came to a rest blocking the two left lanes.

As he tried to get to safety, the teenager was fatally struck by another vehicle, which did not stop.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say they do not have information on the vehicle that killed the teenager, who was a resident of Santa Clarita.
