A California Highway Patrol official said the eastbound 60 Freeway connector to the northbound 215 Freeway also would be closed. Officials did not know how long the connectors would be closed.

Fire crews were sent to the scene to extract the driver, according to a CHP report.

No further details were immediately available.
