Two firefighters have been transported to Mercy Medical Center with minor to moderate injuries after a Calfire vehicle crashed into a big rig hauling demolition materials in Igo just before 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The crash happened on Clear Creek Road at Cloverdale Road and California Highway Patrol officials say details about the crash are still limited, but confirmed that at least one of the people transported to a hospital was a Calfire firefighter.

CHP officials say because of the material being carried by the big rig, a road closure was put in place on Clear Creek Road between Cloverdale and Honeybee Road. The road is expected to reopen around 6 p.m.
