A crash involving a van and a pickup truck prompted authorities to briefly close the southbound Golden State (5) Freeway Monday, so an air ambulance could land to pick up a 1-year-old boy, authorities said.

The crash at Hasley Canyon Road was reported shortly after 5 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP Officer Patrick Kimball said a 1-year-old boy was taken to a hospital, but he had no information on the boy’s condition this afternoon.

The freeway was reopened by about 7:15 a.m.
