A 1:24 a.m. series of traffic collisions on the westbound I-210 Freeway in Pasadena between a car and two Federal Express trucks has caused a massive clean-up effort which is still jamming the freeway during this morning’s commute.

A car which fled the scene was involved in a collision with one of the Fedex trucks. The second truck then collided with the first truck, CHP officials said.

The collisions left one truck blocking the Metro Gold Line tracks and lanes of traffic mear Lake Avenue.

Pasadena spokesperson Lisa Derderian reported that one person was transported with minor injuries by the Pasadena Fire Department to a local hospital.

Morning commute traffic is jammed as far east as the Huntington Drive exit in Arcadia, officials said at 6:30 a.m.

Metro officials said the Gold Line is also disrupted. Pasadena Transit Lines 10 and 40 were offering free rides to Gold Line riders. Both lines run service between Sierra Madre Villa, Allen and Memorial Park stations.

There is no estimated clearing time as of this writing.
