The driver of a big rig was killed after the truck crashed off the side of the 710 Freeway Friday morning and burst into flames in a ravine.
The crash occurred just before 1:30 a.m. on the northbound 710 Freeway just south of Imperial Hwy., the California Highway Patrol said.
"All of a sudden it just blows up," witness Irving Picheco said. "I did not see anyone come out of it."
A SigAlert was issued for the two right lines of the northbound 710 Freeway.
According to officials, the driver, who has only been identified as a female, was driving from the Port of Los Angeles and was carrying a load of Gatorade.
