An overturned flatbed truck blocked lanes early Wednesday when it spilled a load of plywood panels at one of Los Angeles' busiest freeway interchanges.

The big rig crashed on the westbound 10 Freeway near the 101 Freeway interchange in downtown Los Angeles. Panels of plywood fell from the flatbed and onto several lanes.

Details about the crash were not immediately available.

Traffic was backing up on the 10 Freeway and the 101 Freeway.

At about 9 a.m., Caltrans District 7 tweeted that the big rig had been turned upright but that the transition remained closed while the plywood was being picked up. The road reopened later Wednesday morning.
