Pomona, CA -

An investigation was underway today into a pair of collisions involving eight vehicles and a big rig that caught fire on the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway in Pomona, leaving one person dead and nine injured, four critically, authorities said.

The collisions occurred at 8:12 p.m. Monday at Towne Avenue, the California Highway Patrol reported. The first involved four vehicles and a big rig and the second involved four vehicles, said CHP Officer Patrick Kimball.

At least one car ended up under the big rig, which was carrying furniture, said CHP Officer Tatiana Sauquillo.

Two of the injured were airlifted to a hospital via two helicopters, said Michael Pittman, a Los Angeles County Fire Department supervising dispatcher.

The crashes closed the freeway in both directions between Indian Hill Boulevard and Garey Avenue, Kimball said. The westbound lanes were reopened around 9:30 p.m., but the eastbound lanes remained closed well past midnight.

Around 5:55 a.m., the CHP reported that the eastbound carpool lane had been reopened.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
