UPDATE: All Lanes Reopen Following SR 62 Crash

CREATED Jan. 11, 2012

MORONGO VALLEY -  All lanes along a section of SR 62 just north of I-10 are now open to traffic again. A three vehicle traffic collision with injuries closed the northbound lanes of SR 62 just north of Dillon Road in Morongo Valley for several hours Wednesday. According to a Caltrans spokesperson, all northbound lanes reopened shortly after 2 P.M. 

At least three people were taken to the hospital with injuries.

CHP investigators say the driver of a large black pickup truck collided into the back end of a parked Caltrans truck that was getting service assistance from another Caltrans truck at the time. The drivers of both the black pickup truck and one of the Caltrans truck operators sustained serious injuries, according to CHP. 

The crash happened at 6:30 Wednesday just as the morning commute was getting underway.
