Two people were killed on the 210 Freeway Monday afternoon after their vehicle collided with a semi struck. 

The circumstances leading up to the collision were not immediately known, though authorities were dispatched to westbound lanes of the 210 Freeway at around 5:15 p.m. just east of La Tuna Canyon Road offramp. 

With Sky9 overhead, a vehicle could be seen wedged under the backside of the big rig. 

Fire crews were working to remove the sedan from under the truck's cargo area.
