At least one person was injured in a big rig crash on the eastbound 60 Freeway that snarled the morning commute for miles.

The crash happened around 7 a.m. Friday on the Pomona Freeway near the Nogales Street on-ramp in the Rowland Heights area.

Aerial video showed at least one person taken away in an ambulance.

Multiple lanes were initially blocked and the onramp was closed. By 8:45 a.m., only one lane remained blocked, although eastbound traffic was still slowed for miles.
