All westbound lanes of the 10 Freeway were blocked in Calimesa Monday morning after a big rig loaded with 10,000 pounds of Amazon packages overturned.

What was described as an injury collision was reported at 1 a.m. on the 10 Freeway west of Singleton Road in the San Gorgonio Pass, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A super heavy duty tow truck was dispatched to the scene to pick up the big rig and a SigAlert was issued at 1:40 a.m. shutting down the westbound freeway at Singleton Road, the CHP said.

Details about injuries and whether packages were strewn along the freeway were not immediately available. Big rigs typically must be off-loaded before they can be righted.
