A four-vehicle traffic collision in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5, near the Newhall Pass Friday, left drivers with minor injuries and snarled traffic, blocking most freeway lanes.
Los Angeles County and city firefighters received reports of a multivehicle crash on Interstate 5, north of Roxford Street at around 8:57 a.m., according to Marvin Lim, a spokesman for the L.A. County Fire Department.
Those involved suffered only minor injuries and two people were taken to the hospital, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Zachary Emmons.
“There were two patients transported to Holy Cross with minor injuries,” he said, adding that no further information on the condition of the patients was available.
The collision prompted a temporary SigAlert that had all southbound lanes of the 5 freeway blocked except the carpool lane. Traffic appeared to have backed up to State Route 14. The alert was cleared just before 10:30 a.m.
