LAKEPORT, Calif. – A wreck involving a big rig and a smaller vehicle resulted in minor injuries and closed down a portion of Highway 29 on Tuesday.


The crash, which took place just north of the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff, was reported just before 3:30 p.m.


A small vehicle and a semi collided, with the big rig over on its side, according to witnesses.


The California Highway Patrol reported that there were four crash victims who were out and walking but had sustained injuries.


Caltrans personnel were called to the scene to assist with setting up cones around the blocked southbound lane, the CHP said.


The truck was reported to be leaking diesel fuel, according to the CHP.


A full report on the individuals involved in the crash and the extent of their injuries wasn't available from the CHP Tuesday evening. Minor injuries were reported.


It took several hours to investigate the scene and remove the vehicles.


At around 6:30 p.m. several CHP officers were still examining the scene. The big rig had been set upright but still hadn't been removed from the highway median at that point.


About an hour and a half later the truck had been towed off the highway.
