A crash involving a big rig on the southbound lanes of Highway 14 in Newhall brought traffic to a standstill Monday morning. 

Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to reports of a traffic collision at 10:15 a.m. on the southbound lanes, near Newhall Avenue, according to spokesman Bernard Peters. 

The crash involved a big rig and two sedans — one of which was a white Mercedes, and initially blocked lanes No. 2 through 4, according to the California Highway Patrol. 

There were no life-threatening injuries and response from the paramedics was canceled, said Peters.
