The eastbound Pomona Freeway at Diamond Bar Boulevard is expected to be closed for at least two hours Friday as emergency workers try to clear a crash involving at least three big rigs, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The CHP first received a call at 11:05 a.m. about a traffic accident on the 60 Freeway that resulted in at least one big rig overturning, CHP spokesman Ed Jacobs said.

It is unclear if any drivers or passengers were seriously injured. At noon, emergency medical workers were still working to remove injured people from the scene. A helicopter had landed on the freeway to help transport at least one victim.
