A tanker truck overturned Tuesday in a collision involving at least one other vehicle on the southbound Golden State (5) Freeway in the Boyle Heights area, blocking all the southbound lanes.

The crash was reported at about 6 a.m. near Main Street, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Traffic was backed up while crews worked to clear the scene. Some freeway on-ramps also were closed to limit traffic from entering the area.

One person was taken to a hospital in unknown condition, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
