Two people were killed in a crash Wednesday morning on the eastbound 10 Freeway in Claremont.

The crash on the freeway, just west of Indian Hill Boulevard, was reported about 3:53 a.m. and involved a big rig and a vehicle, said California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Nicholson. A driver and passenger were killed, he said, but it was unknown which vehicles they were riding in.

Two lanes of the freeway were shut down for about three hours, but all lanes were reopened shortly after 7 a.m., Nicholson said.


No other details were immediately available.
