LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Traffic is moving again on southbound State Route 710 in Long Beach after being closed following a collision between a Metro bus and a police cruiser.

The California Highway Patrol shut down all southbound lanes following the crash around 1 a.m. Monday. The freeway was reopened about two hours later.

CHP Officer Monica Posada says the collision occurred in the fast lane. The bus driver and the Long Beach police officer were the sole occupants of their respective vehicles.

Posada says both drivers were taken to hospitals for evaluation and treatment of minor injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
