Overturned Rig Jams Southbound 5 Freeway Visitors
An overturned big rig closed down many lanes of the southbound 5 Freeway during the busy morning commute in Burbank. The wreck occurred about 5:30 a.m. near Burbank Boulevard. The rig, which ended up partly on top of a K-rail, leaked milk.
Traffic appeared to be squeezing through a single lane as emergency personnel worked to clean the scene. Southbound traffic was backed up for miles. The reason for the crash wasn’t immediately known.
