A multivehicle traffic collision involving a jackknifed big rig leaking fuel on Highway 126 Monday afternoon prompted a response from Hazmat units.
Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel responded to reports of a four-vehicle crash on Highway 126 around 1:45 p.m., according to Supervisor Leslie Lua.
“It’s a collision on (Highway) 126 at Commerce Center Drive on the westbound side,” California Highway Patrol Officer Brandt said. “The Fire Department is partially blocking the No. 2 lane.”
“There’s one truck with a fuel leak,” Lua added, which prompted a Hazmat response.
The right two lanes of Highway 126 traveling westbound were shut down for an unknown duration as Caltrans works to clean approximately 40 gallons of fuel that spilled into drains, according to Caltrans as of 4:15 p.m.
No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
