Three people were injured and taken to the hospital Monday morning following a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 near Gavin Canyon where highway construction is underway, according to fire and law enforcement officials.

None of the injuries are believed to be serious or life-threatening.

Shortly before 10:45 a.m., six vehicles collided in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 about one mile south of Calgrove Boulevard. They included: a gray Toyota Corolla, red Ford pickup truck, a black sedan, a green Toyota Sienna van, a blue Chevrolet sedan and a black Ford Edge, according to a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol.

“Three people went to the hospital,” a firefighter at Newhall Fire Station No. 73 told The Signal.

The gender and ages of the victims were not disclosed.

Traffic on all northbound lanes was stopped for about 15 minutes.

At about 11 a.m., CHP officers re-opened the two slow lanes. The other two lanes, including the fast lane, remained closed to traffic for more than 30 minutes.

Just as emergency response crews were clearing from the crash, CHP officers received reports from deputies of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department of a second traffic collision involving a motorcyclist on Ridge Route at Cow Pine Road.

At 10:50 a.m., paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the traffic collision which ended up being on Pine Canyon Road, about five miles east of Mesa View Drive, said Fire Department Supervisor Kyle Sanford.

The motorcyclist suffered no serious injury, he said.
