The extent of the injuries was not available, according to Sanchez.  

According to Josh Greengard, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol’s Newhall office, both vehicles were on the right shoulder, and no other lanes were blocked upon arrival or during the investigation. 

“The driver of the semi-truck was uninjured,” wrote Greengard in an email to The Signal. “The cause of the crash is still being investigated.”
