The crash on the eastbound 134 Freeway was at the ramp to the northbound 210 Freeway. The semitrailer truck blocked the ramp and nearly tumbled down an embankment.

No injuries were reported. A SigAlert remained in effect for about three hours.

At about 7 a.m., crews were at the scene of a crash that closed the southbound 405 Freeway connector to the westbound 101 Freeway.
