November 9, 2011 |  6:04 pm

Rush-hour traffic on the southbound 110 Freeway near Gage Avenue was snarled after a multi-vehicle accident, officials said Wednesday evening.

A Sig Alert was issued about 5:45 p.m. after investigators closed four lanes while they waited for tow trucks to arrive, the California Highway Patrol said. The alert was expected to last at least 90 minutes.

The accident was reported shortly before 5:25 p.m. and appeared to involve as many as six vehicles, the CHP said.

Multiple patients were injured, the Los Angeles Fire Department said, and one of them was freed from a vehicle.

No additional details were immediately available.
