LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Three people were seriously injured Sunday during a crash on the Pasadena (110) Freeway in Highland Park, authorities said.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched at 7:23 a.m. to the southbound freeway at Avenue 43, where a woman and two men suffered "at least" serious injuries, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The victims were a woman approximately 50 years old, a man approximately 50 years old and a man approximately 40 years old, Stewart said.

The southbound freeway was closed at East Avenue 43 due to a large debris field, and drivers were advised to seek alternate routes.
