First responders kept busy all throughout the Santa Clarita Valley as multiple crashes took place under wet weather conditions Monday.
Los Angeles County firefighters responded to reports of a big-rig crash blocking the southbound truck lanes of Highway 14 at Interstate 5 just after noon. The collision resulted in a fuel spill that prompted a SigAlert, warning that the truck lanes had closed due to a slippery substance on the road.
“There’s a big rig on the shoulder coming off (the freeway) and is leaking fuel,” said Fire Department spokeswoman Leslie Lua.
Just about a half-mile north of that incident, a separate, single-big-rig crash had also taken place.
No injuries were reported in the crashes, she added.
At around 12:30 p.m., firefighters also responded to a separate solo crash on Soledad Canyon Road toward the northbound 14 freeway, where one vehicle fell on its roof.
“There were no (persons) trapped, so no need for extraction,” said fire spokesman Marvin Lim, however one person was transported to a hospital.
The California Highway Patrol also responded to the scene, which temporarily shut down the northbound 14 off-ramps at Soledad Canyon Road at around 1 p.m.
