All lanes of the southbound 5 Freeway were reopened Monday in Valencia after an overturned tanker forced the CHP to close some lanes.

The tanker, which was carrying butane gas, overturned after colliding with a Toyota Prius at about 3:03 a.m. near the McBean Parkway exit.

The two right lanes remained closed at about 8:15 a.m., but were soon reopened, said Officer Ed Jacobs of the California Highway Patrol.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries, officials said.
