A multivehicle traffic collision resulted in delays on both directions of Highway 14 Tuesday afternoon.

Los Angeles County Fire Department officials responded to reports of a traffic collision on Highway 14 north of Soledad Canyon Road and Shadow Pines just before 3:45 p.m., according to spokesman Austin Bennett.

California Highway Patrol officers also responded to the scene after a passing motorist called in the crash, CHP Officer Stephen Brandt added.

Though the original call came in as two to three vehicles, the first units that arrived on the scene reported a total of four vehicles — three on the southbound side and one on the northbound, Bennett added.

“(There’s a) total of three patients, all with minor injuries,” he said. “They requested three ambulances but canceled two. The (remaining) ambulance is most likely for basic life support.”

At least one patient was being transported to a local hospital.
