Four people, including two road workers, were injured Wednesday in a crash involving a construction truck and van on the 14 Freeway near Canyon Country.

The victims were hospitalized with minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash at 3 a.m. involved a GMC Safari van that was exiting the 14 Freeway on a transition road when it collided with the construction truck, according to the California Highway Patrol. The construction truck and trailer were parked on the side of the road.

Two workers in front of the truck were picking up construction signs when they were struck, according to the CHP. The driver and a female passenger also were hospitalized.

A SigAlert was in effect early Wednesday, but all lanes have since reopened at Sand Canyon Road.
