GRANADA HILLS, LOS ANGELES —
Several lanes of the eastbound 118 Freeway are shut down in Granada Hills early Monday due to a crash involving an overturned big rig.
The closure, located at Woodley Avenue, is expected to last at least one hour, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash is believed to involve multiple other vehicles, one of which was spotted being loaded onto a tow truck.
The westbound side of the freeway also appeared to be slightly impacted as onlookers drove past the large overturned semi truck.
Morning commuters were backed up for several miles as emergency crews worked to investigate and clear the scene from a minor fuel spill.
