A messy big-rig crash on the 210 Freeway in Pasadena was cleared Friday night and the connector reopened, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash happened shortly after 4 p.m. on the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway transition ramp between Highway 134 and Mountain Street, according to a SigAlert issued for the area.

That portion of the freeway was re-opened at 10:40 p.m., nearly seven hours after a big rig spun out of control, littering the lanes with lumber and utility pipes before slamming into a water main, a CHP spokesman said.

All westbound lanes on the 210 Freeway and the Fair Oaks off-ramp had been closed while crews cleaned up utility pipes and lumber, the SigAlert noted.
