A traffic collision involving a big rig and multiple other vehicles left four people injured and temporarily shut down the westbound 210 Freeway in Pasadena on Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

The collision was reported just after 2:30 p.m. at Lake Avenue. Aerial video showed that the crash was directly under the overpass.

The big rig had spilled debris into lanes, and traffic was being directed off the freeway at Lake Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol’s online incident site.

The log indicated five vehicles were involved, in addition to the big rig.

Four people were injured, according to the Pasadena Fire Department, which was responding. The department urged drivers to avoid the area, and said side streets were affected by traffic.

A SigAlert was issued at 2:37 p.m.

By about 4:30 p.m., all lanes had reopened, CHP’s Southern Division said on Twitter.

A duplicate entry in CHP’s log initially indicated the collision was at Hill Avenue, but the crash actually occurred further west, at Lake Avenue.
