A big rig crashed off the side of a freeway transition road in Boyle Heights Monday, spilling some fuel and resulting in the closure of the connector road while crews worked to repair guard rails.

The crash was reported about 6 a.m. on the connector from the westbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway to the southbound Santa Ana (5) Freeway, the California Highway Patrol reported. One person was treated for an unspecified injury.

The big rig ended up on its side, wedged in an area below the roadway surface and adjacent to a freeway abutment structure.

A hazardous materials team was sent to clean up fuel that spilled from the truck’s tanks.
The transition road was reopened just after 5 p.m., the CHP reported.
