Authorities closed a stretch of the 710 Freeway Monday morning when a three-car crash hurt four people, according to authorities.
The wreck happened around 11 a.m., leaving one of the cars overturned on the 710 near Willow Street, according to the Long Beach Fire Department.
Five ambulances headed to the scene as the CHP shut down the southbound side of the freeway. But crews ended up taking just four people to local hospitals, fire officials said.
Two of them had traumatic injuries, but all four were in stable condition, LBFD spokesman Jake Heflin said. The fifth patient ended up being unhurt, authorities said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the crash.
