UPDATE: Children, mother injured in 210 Freeway crash in Azusa

AZUSA – Two children and their mother were hospitalized Friday after their car was involved in a multi-vehicle wreck on the 210 Freeway in Azusa, officials said.
The crash took place about 10:15 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway at Citrus Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Ed Jacobs said.
Two children riding in the sedan, a white Honda, were flown to a hospital for treatment by helicopter and listed in critical-but-stable condition, Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Kurt Kobler said. Their mother was also taken to a hospital by ambulance in stable condition, accompanied by another three-year-old child who was not injured.
In addition to the sedan, the collision involved a pickup truck, a tow truck and a big rig, officials said.
The driver of the pickup truck was taken to a hospital for treatment of apparently minor injuries, Kobler said. No other injuries were reported.
The sedan was badly damaged in the wreck. Officials at the scene reported “half the vehicle is gone,” Jacobs said.
Officials shut down the right lane of the eastbound 210 Freeway, as well as the Citrus Avenue offramp, for more than an hour following the collision, according to CHP logs.
The collision was under investigation by officers from the Baldwin Park office of the CHP.
