Two vehicles were left overturned following a traffic collision that shut down all southbound lanes of Highway 14, near the Escondido Canyon Road off-ramp, just before 3 p.m. Sunday, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervising Fire Dispatcher Bernard Peters.
Two passenger vehicles and one semi-truck were involved in the crash, said Peters.
Only the two smaller vehicles were overturned. One, a green SUV, rolled onto the center divider, prompting a brief slowdown of northbound traffic.
Multiple vehicle occupants sustained injuries in the crash. “[Emergency personnel] transported two people to the hospital,” said Peters. “They were out of the cars when units arrived.”
As of 3:21 p.m. all southbound traffic into Santa Clarita remained blocked, according to Peters.
