LOS ANGELES (AP) - Commuter traffic is backed up for miles after a big-rig carrying glass overturned on a freeway transition road in East Los Angeles.

California Highway Patrol Officer Alex Rubio says the tractor-trailer crashed shortly before 6 a.m. Monday on the transition from southbound Interstate 5 to State Route 60.

All lanes are expected to be closed for hours as crews clear the truck and the glass spread across the roadway.

Television news showed some vehicles avoiding the standstill by driving over the center divider.

Rubio didn’t immediately know if the truck driver is injured.
