An injury crash involving two big rigs blocked traffic on the southbound 5 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles for about four hours Tuesday while crews worked to clean up spilled diesel fuel.
The crash was reported at about 12:30 p.m. near the 5 and the 110 freeways, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Two people were injured. Firefighters freed one person from the wreckage, and that person and another patient were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries described as not life-threatening.
All southbound lanes of the 5 Freeway were closed at the 110 freeway, but lanes reopened by 4:45 p.m., according to Caltrans.
