A pair of traffic accidents sent one man to the hospital in serious condition and backed up traffic for miles on Highway 14 this morning, according to a fire captain.

A Kia minivan struck the center divider on the southbound side of Highway 14 just before 10 a.m. Monday. The van with a mother and her two children rolled over, blocking up traffic on the southbound side of the freeway for at least three miles, said Rick McClure, Los Angeles Fire Department captain. McClure was on his way home when he saw the first accident, he said.

Engines from Los Angeles County Fire Department station 104 raced to the scene and stopped next to the center divider on the northbound side, McClure said.

The backed-up traffic on the southbound side prompted firefighters to access the crash scene from the northbound lanes, he said.

The mother and her two kids escaped with minor injuries, McClure said. As the truck idled next to the northbound divider it was hit by a Honda Accord, McClure said.

The car slammed into the rear of the truck seriously injuring the driver, he said.

Traffic was momentarily stopped on the northbound lanes to land a helicopter on the freeway, McClure said.

The driver of the Honda Accord was flown to Providence Holy Cross Hospital and his condition is listed as serious, McClure said.
