A collision involving a flatbed truck and a semi-truck closed the two far lanes of the southbound 5 freeway just south of the eastbound 210 freeway for more than three hours Wednesday.
The crash occurred at 12:26 p.m. along the southbound 5 freeway before the Roxford Street exit, according to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer Josh Greengard.
One of the trucks ended up down a dirt embankment off the side of the freeway and onto Sepulveda Boulevard.
The red tanker truck went through a fence and came to a rest just east of the Los Angeles Aqueduct Filtration Plant, according to a reporter on the scene.
The Los Angeles Fire Department transported one person with unknown injuries and Caltrans was on scene to sand down fuel spilled as a result of the crash.
CHP issued a Sigalert for the two far right lanes, the No. 4 and No.5 lanes, of the southbound 5 at 12:47 p.m. which continued until 3:45 p.m.
The crash also backed up traffic coming from the Santa Clarita Valley to Lyons Avenue.
