Four people were hurt Monday in a crash involving a big rig and three other vehicles that shut down all westbound lanes of the Riverside (91) Freeway near the Santa Ana (5) Freeway.
The collision was reported shortly after 10 a.m., just east of Magnolia Avenue. The truck overturned, blocking the westside lanes, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada.
Sand spilled out of the truck, prompting a call for a sweeper vehicle and a tow truck to remove the overturned rig, Posada said.
Four people were taken to area hospitals, but the severity of their injuries was not immediately clear, according to a Metronet ambulance service dispatcher. One of the injured was trapped in one of the vehicles and had to be freed from the wreckage, the dispatcher said.
