Southbound 5 Freeway closed by tanker-car collision
The southbound 5 Freeway was closed early Monday in Valencia when a tanker truck overturned after colliding with a car.
The two right lanes remained closed at about 8:15 a.m., but they were expected to open within an hour, said Officer Ed Jacobs of the California Highway Patrol.
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, Jacobs said.
Both drivers suffered minor injuries, officials said.
