The northbound lanes of the 710 Freeway were closed in Bell Gardens on Monday night after a truck carrying liquid asphalt collided with several cars.

There were no immediate reports of injuries in the crash, which occurred about 8:30 p.m.

CBS-TV Channel 2 reported that the truck dumped 1,500 gallons of liquid asphalt onto the roadway and that it would take some time to clean it up.

It's unclear when the freeway will reopen.
