Northbound 405 down to one lane after big-rig and sedan collide
All lanes but one on the northbound 405 Freeway have been closed near the junction with the 101 Freeway after a big-rig collided with a sedan.
The accident occurred at about 5:40 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Craycraft said. It was not immediately clear whether there were any major injuries.
Authorities expected four lanes of the 405 to be closed for at least an hour and a half, Craycraft said.
The big-rig “jack-knifed” during the crash, he said, and its fuel was spilling onto the road.
"It’s going to be awhile," he said.
The carpool lane was initially closed as well but has since re-opened, he said.
