A traffic collision involving a transit bus resulted in a SigAlert for southbound Interstate 5 lanes Sunday morning.

The incident was reported shortly after 7:30 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 at Lyons Avenue after a silver pickup truck reportedly hit an embankment, then hit a transit bus, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Nicholson.

Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene, treating two patients for minor injuries, though no transports were reportedly made, according to fire officials.

Neither agency was able to provide details on which transit bus was involved in the incident.

A SigAlert was issued for the No. 4 and 5 lanes at 7:55 a.m. as the bus was escorted off to the right shoulder to offload passengers to another bus, and lanes were reopened at 8:40 a.m., Nicholson added.
