A big rig crashed into a wall on northbound Highway 14 in the area of Golden Valley Road at approximately 1:50 p.m. today, according to reports from the California Highway Patrol.

CHP Officer J.C. Lesnet said the crash occurred when a truck crashed into the center divider of the highway just north of Placerita Canyon Road.

Lesnet said he received a call from someone who witnessed the accident that indicated the truck may have been cut off by another vehicle, causing the truck to swerve.

The truck crashed through the center divider, knocking debris into lanes on southbound Highway 14, Lesnet said.

The carpool lane and the adjacent lane on northbound Highway 14 were closed off for the next hour and a half as crews work to clear debris in the area.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department also closed one lane of southbound Highway 14 closed off while they evaluated the people involved in the accident, Lesnet said.

All roads had reopened for normal traffic by 4 p.m.

A spokesman for the Fire Department said four other vehicles were involved in the crash but only one person, the driver of the truck, reported an injury as a result of the crash.

The driver said he had pain in his knees, the spokesman said. It is unknown if the the truck driver was transported to the hospital.
