At about 2:40 p.m. on Monday, August 11, 2014, three people were injured in a crash on the 210 Freeway in Pasadena, reported the Los Angeles Times. While traveling westbound, the big rig slammed into the center divider and jumped up onto a section of rail line under construction for the future Gold Line extension. The crash, which occurred at Rosemead Boulevard near the Sierra Madre Villa station, involved two other vehicles, one of which, a sedan, was crushed and its driver seriously injured. Emergency responders transported that driver, along with the drivers of the truck and the other vehicle, to area hospitals. Authorities are investigating the accident.
