A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy who was riding a motorcycle was injured in a crash on the 710 Freeway, which prompted a SigAlert in South Gate Monday morning.
The crash occurred just before 5:30 a.m. and forced the closure of three lanes on the southbound side of the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log.
The deputy was transported to a local hospital following the collision, said spokesman Ramon Montenegro with the Sheriff’s Department.
The extents of the injuries to the deputy were not immediately known, but they were not believed to be life threatening, Montenegro said.
It was unclear if the deputy was on duty at the time of the crash.
At least one other vehicle was involved in the incident, but the cause of the collision was unknown.
A SigAlert was issued about 5:30 a.m. for three lanes on the southbound side of the 710 Freeway, according to the CHP incident log.
All lanes were reopened just before 8:15 a.m., the CHP tweeted.
