The transition road from the southbound San Gabriel River (605) Freeway to the westbound Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway in Norwalk was shut down Saturday evening by a collision that overturned a big rig and erupted another vehicle in flames, causing a brushfire, authorities said.

The crash was reported at 5:55 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

All lanes of the southbound San Gabriel River Freeway were temporarily stopped while the transition road was shut down, the CHP said. The SigAlert was issued at 6:09 p.m.

Los Angeles County firefighters worked to put out the flames and the call was out for two heavy-duty tow trucks to pick up the tractor and trailer, the CHP said.

It was classified as an injury collision but no specifics were released about injuries.
