Overturned Big Rig Blocks 14 Freeway North of LA

The big rig toppled onto its side across all lanes of the freeway between Palmdale and Santa Clarita

An overturned big rig blocked traffic for hours Wednesday on the 14 Freeway north of Los Angeles.

The truck crashed Wednesday morning onto its side on the southbound side of the road near Escondido Canyon Road in the Agua Dulce area. The trailer blocked all lanes, leading to the nearly nine-hour closure between Palmdale and Santa Clarita.

The backup extended for miles.

All lanes reopened at about 1:30 p.m.

There were no reports of serious injuries.
