SUN VALLEY - Two people were rescued from the Los Angeles River tonight after a two-vehicle crash that sent at least one into the Burbank Western Channel wash in Sun Valley, a city fire official said.

The crash was reported at 6:42 p.m. in the 8100 block of Glenoaks Boulevard, according to Shawn Lenske of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Two people were pulled from the wreckage off the Lanark bridge in a litter basket, said Lenske.

A 40-year-old woman was taken to a hospital with minor injuries and a 50-year-old man was hospitalized in moderate condition, he said.
