A big rig whose driver may have fallen unconscious has struck seven vehicles on the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway north of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Los Angeles Fire Department reported one male patient was transported to an area hospital with unspecified injuries. No other individuals sustained injuries, LAFD spokesperson Devin Gales said.

The truck came to a stop just south of Santa Monica Boulevard. Traffic is reportedly backed up for miles.
