An overturned big rig blocked the two right lanes of the eastbound 101 Freeway at Las Virgenes Road in Calabasas on Monday morning, triggering a SigAlert and jamming traffic.

The lanes were expected to reopen at 7 a.m., CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos said.

The accident occurred at about 3:30 a.m., when the big rig struck a car hauler and tipped over, according to the SigAlert website.

Three CHP units were deployed to the scene.
