A person was injured today in a crash involving a large truck and several other vehicles on the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Irwindale, authorities said.
The crash at Irwindale Avenue was reported about 11:40 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
Three westbound lanes were blocked after the big rig overturned, and crews were sent to clean up about 20 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled onto the roadway, the CHP reported. All but two lanes were closed into the afternoon, and express busses operated by Foothill Transit were running up to 30 minutes late due to traffic.
All lanes were reported open around 4:40 p.m., according to the CHP.
Paramedics took one person to a hospital in unknown condition, said county fire Inspector Scott Miller. The circumstances of the crash were under investigation.—City News Service
