A traffic collision involving a big rig resulted in the closure of Highway 14 Monday morning.
Los Angeles County Fire Department and California Highway Patrol personnel responded to reports of a traffic collision, with a semi truck versus the center divider of northbound Highway 14, north of Soledad Canyon Road, just before 8 a.m., according to Supervisor Franklin Lopez and CHP Officer Tony Polizzi.
A SigAlert was issued just after 8:30 a.m. closing both northbound and southbound lanes of Highway 14 from Soledad to Agua Dulce canyon roads for an unknown duration due to a fuel and rock spill, Polizzi said.
A Hazmat team was called to the scene to assist in the cleanup, Lopez added.
By 10 a.m., the right two northbound and southbound lanes of Highway 14 were reopened, though the left lane near the median, as well as the two left lanes on the northbound side, remained blocked until the big rig and fuel were cleared from the roadway, per Caltrans.
All southbound lanes were reopened by noon, followed by the northbound lanes at 3 p.m., according to Caltrans reports.
The driver of the big rig was transported to the hospital as a result of the incident, though no other injuries were reported.
