Crash involving spilled swimming pool chemicals snarls 60 Freeway traffic in Hacienda Heights

HACIENDA HEIGHTS — A two-vehicle crash involving spilled swimming pool chemicals prompted a Sig Alert on the Pomona (60) Freeway early Thursday, officials said.
The incident was reported just after 7 a.m. on the westbound 60 Freeway near Azusa Avenue.
No major injuries were initially reported in the crash between a large pickup truck and another vehicle, however four to five gallons of an undetermined swimming pool chemical the truck was hauling spilled into the roadway, California Highway Patrol Officer Ed Jacobs said.
Officials treated the spill cautiously and shut down the three right traffic lanes, though a hazardous materials crew was not called in, he said.
All traffic lanes were reopened about 9 a.m.
