Big Rig Slams Into Center Divider, Stopping Traffic

A big rig slammed into the northbound center divider on the northbound side of Highway 14 on Friday near the Placerita Canyon Road exit, spilling concrete debris into the road and bringing traffic to a standstill, according to California Highway Patrol officials. 

 “We got a call at 1:51 p.m. about a tractor trailer versus the center divide — it doesn’t appear that anybody was hurt,” said CHP Officer Tatiana Sauquillo. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, she said.

“He hit the center divide and there’s a SigAlert in the (left-most) lane. This one will probably take about two hours (to clear),” she said.

Witnesses reported that several lanes were impacted by the collision.

Keep checking back for more details as they develop.
