The Pomona (60) Freeway in Pomona was shut down in both directions for a time Monday morning after a big-rig struck the center divider, ending up in both the eastbound and westbound lanes, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The accident happened 1:54 a.m., the CHP reported, when the eastbound Fed Ex big-rig struck the center divider, causing the tractor to wind up on the westbound side while the two trailers remained on the eastbound side. The freeway was then shut down in both directions so tow trucks could pick up the tractor and trailers, the CHP said.

There were no reports of injuries. Paramedics cleared the scene shortly after arriving, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Kyle Sanford.

By about 6:30 a.m., all but the eastbound HOV lane had been reopened, the CHP reported.
