Big rig crashes on 10 Freeway in Pomona slow eastbound commute

This post has been updated. See the note below for details.

Two crashes involving big rigs early Tuesday morning sent at least one person to the hospital and jammed a one-mile stretch of the eastbound 10 Freeway in Pomona. 

The first collision occurred about 2:14 a.m. on the eastbound 10 Freeway just west of White Avenue and involved two big rigs, with at least one jackknifing across lanes, said California Highway Patrol spokesman Alex Rubio.

"All [eastbound] lanes were blocked from approximately 2:24 a.m. until 4:25 a.m., when the carpool lane opened," Rubio said.

The condition of the person transported to the hospital was not immediately known, he added.

The second crash occurred about a mile west of the first on the eastbound 10 Freeway just before Dudley Street at about 3:02 a.m., the CHP said.

All lanes were closed to deal with the wreckage, but the carpool lane has since reopened, officials said.

As of 5:45 a.m., traffic remained slow from the 57 Freeway as crews worked to clear the wreckage and reopen lanes, the CHP said.

[Updated, 7 a.m. PST Jan. 28: California Highway Patrol Officer Jennifer Cassidy said all lanes on the eastbound 10 Freeway in the area of the big rig crashes in Pomona had been reopened as of 6:42 a.m.]
