August 7, 2012 | 10:20 am

The 10 Freeway in Baldwin Park has been reopened after a rush-hour truck collision and diesel fuel spill had closed all eastbound lanes, the California Highway Patrol said.

CHP Officer Ming Hsu said all lanes of the freeway, which was closed to eastbound traffic starting just before the connector to the 605, reopened around 10 a.m.

The crash between a big rig and a small tanker truck occurred about 7:20 a.m. near Baldwin Park Boulevard and caused diesel fuel to spill across all eastbound lanes.

Two people, including the driver of the big rig, were injured in the collision, which is under investigation.
