Lanes Cleared After Multi-Vehicle Collision Brings 210 Traffic to Standstill

No known reports of injuries in collision.

UPDATE, 6:34 p.m.: All lanes were cleared of the accident as of 5:47 p.m., according to Tatiana Sauquillo of the CHP.

Arcadia fire fighters were called to the scene for possible injuries, but none were confirmed by officers. Authorities are investigating the claim that the driver of a black BMW or Mercedes Benz was swerving and texting prior to the collision, Sauquillo said.

PREVIOUSLY: A multi-vehicle collision was reported on the 210 freeway westbound at Huntington Drive, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The accident happened around 5:34 p.m. There may be as many as four vehicles blocking the HOV and No. 1 lanes, according to CHP traffic logs. Traffic westbound appears to be severely backed up to as far as Highland Avenue as of 5:58 p.m.

It is not known at this time if any injuries have been reported. CHP officers first arrived on scene  a little after 5:50 p.m.

This story will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

I agree with rebel mama. She is not being racist. I have white, mexican, chinese and black family members. It is a cultural thing.People are taught how to drive in their own language, not english, as a result they lose imperative info on safe and proper driving. This is not racial. It is a fact. Kids no longer have drivers ed in high school and don't know a stop sign, a fire hydrant, bright lights or the use of blinkers. I live in Arecadia and can't wait to get out of here. You take you life in your hands driving through here.I Am NOT A RACIST, just a realist.

I wondered what all the sirens were about. Thank you for the information. There were a number of times today when I heard multiple sirens going to calls. When I heard the sirens this evening, I thought "Not more sirens". We heard fewer sirens each day when Santa Teresita still had an emergency room.
