An injury crash involving two semi-trailer trucks and a car sent the car’s driver to a local trauma center and backed up northbound traffic on Interstate 5 near the Valencia Boulevard exit for several hours on Friday.

Three people were injured and Interstate 5 traffic was snarled Friday following a collision involving two semi-trailer trucks and a car.

Traffic was backed up on the freeway as officials shut down three lanes of the northbound side of the I-5 and blocked the Valencia Boulevard exit.

The collision took place about 11:17 a.m., when a car became wedged between the two trucks, according to Matt Levesque, inspector for Los Angeles County Fire Department.

One of the three injured patients was transported to a trauma center in critical condition, he said.

“It was a small car to begin with,” he said. “It was made real small after it was hit by the semis.”
