SigAlert declared for 5 Freeway in Castaic after truck overturns


A big rig overturned on the Golden State (5) Expressway in the Castaic place today, shutting down highway lanes, the California Highway Patrol reported.

There were initial reports of an injury, but that hasn’t yet been verified, Villalobos said.

One of the gas tanks of the truck was ripped off when the vehicle overturned, spilling diesel fuel, he said, including that a Hazmat team is being sent by Caltrans to the scene to clean up the spill, which closed down the 4 and No, 3 lanes.

The lanes were anticipated to stay shut until at least 9 a.m.

The accident was under investigation.
