Man badly injured in crash on 210 Freeway in Pasadena

PASADENA — Rescuers rushed a man to a trauma center in critical condition Saturday after his Ford Mustang was involved in a crash with a big rig, authorities said.
The crash was reported about 12:05 p.m. on the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway at Allen Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Cracraft said.
Firefighters had to cut the man’s Ford Mustang apart to free him from the wreckage, which had become entangled with the big rig, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.
He was taken to Huntington Hospital in Pasadena with major injuries, she added. A description of the injured man was not available.
The crash blocked the Allen Avenue offramp of the westbounf 210 Freeway, prompting officials to issue a Sig Alert that remained in effect for more than an hour, officials said.
No arrests were initially made at the scene, Cracraft said.
The cause of the crash was being investigated by the CHP’s Altadena Office.
