The California Highway Patrol was on scene early Tuesday of a big-rig rollover on the connector between southbound Interstate 5 and eastbound Interstate 10 near downtown Los Angeles, causing a diesel fuel spill that was expected to close the road until 8 a.m.

The accident occurred shortly before 4 a.m., according to a CHP report.

The Mission Road onramp to southbound Interstate 5 was also closed. It was unknown how many people were injured in the solo-vehicle accident or what the truck was carrying, said Officer Anthony Martin of the CHP.

Motorists were being diverted at the Cesar Chavez Boulevard offramp.
