An overturned vehicle blocking freeway lanes resulted in an airlift and slowed traffic on Highway 14 Monday morning.

The incident was reported as a single-vehicle crash shortly after 10 a.m. on the southbound side of Highway 14, north of Soledad Canyon Road, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman Sean Ferguson.

A sedan had reportedly flipped over and was blocking the carpool and No. 2 lanes, added California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Nicholson of the CHP’s Traffic Management Office.

A Fire Department helicopter was called to the scene to airlift a patient in unknown condition to a local hospital, resulting in all southbound lanes of traffic being halted for a short time to allow the helicopter to land, per fire officials.
