A traffic collision involving a gasoline tanker and a cement truck on Highway 14 near Placerita Canyon Road tied up traffic for more than three hours this morning, a California Highway Patrol sergeant said.

Shortly after 4:45 a.m. Wednesday, CHP officers received reports of the two trucks colliding in the northbound lanes of the highway about a quarter mile north of Placerita, said CHP Sgt. John Lutz.

There were no injuries or fuel spills as a result of the crash, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department spokeswoman.

Firefighters responded to the scene at 4:50 a.m., she said.

“We got the call as a vehicle versus a tanker, but there was no request for an ambulance,” she said.

Motorists northbound on Highway 14 faced a three-hour closure of the right-hand lane as emergency crews worked to remove the tanker and cement truck.

“It was the northbound lanes, so traffic wasn’t as bad as it could have been,” Lutz said.

At 8 a.m., tow truck operators were still working to remove the two trucks.
