WEST COVINA — A multi-car crash on the 10 Freeway sent at least one person to the hospital with serious injuries early Thursday, authorities said.
The crash was reported just before 5:20 a.m. on the westbound 605 Freeway, just east of Puente Avenue, according to California Highway Patrol logs.
Initial reports from the scene indicated the crash involved four vehicles, including a big-rig, however the circumstances remained unclear.
How many people were injured, or the extend of their injuries, was also unavailable, though officials said the crash involved “major injuries.”
Freeway lanes were cleared within 15 minutes of the crash, logs show, however an offramp of the 10 Freeway remained closed for nearly an hour.
