Three people were injured, one of the critically, when two big-rig trucks and two cars collided on Friday on the 5 Freeway in the Valencia area.Authorities responded to the 5 North at Valencia Boulevard at about 11:15 a.m. One of the injured was trapped in a car that became wedged between the trucks and had to be removed by firefighters.

The accident and oil that spilled across several lanes forced the CHP to shut down two of the four northbound lanes.

Traffic in the area slowed to a crawl with the lanes closures and the investigation of the crash.
