    Multiple crashes involving multiple big rigs as well as a passenger car forced the closure of the eastbound 210 Freeway to eastbound 210 Freeway transition road in Pasadena on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.

    Multiple big rigs and a passenger vehicle were involved in an early morning crash Wednesday on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena.

    The crash was reported at about 2 a.m.

    "We got a call of a jackknifed big rig in the tunnels here," said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Barry K. Jones. "Officers responded and we found that we actually ended up with three big rigs involved in three separate accidents, and a passenger car," 

    An initial investigation of the crash showed that wet weather played a role, CHP said.

    Two people were transported to hospitals with minor injuries, CHP said.

    A Sig-Alert has been issued for the eastbound 210 Freeway to the eastbound 210 Freeway connector road, CHP said. Traffic had been diverted to the westbound 134 Freeway and 710 Freeway transition roads. All lanes were reopened by 7:15 a.m.

    Multiple crashes have occurred involving big rigs at transition roads on the 210 Freeway during wet weather conditions. A jackknifed big rig caused freeway closures Tuesday.
