A big rig carrying produce crashed into a wall on the 5 Freeway in Anaheim Friday morning and caught fire, forcing a full closure on the northbound side of the road.
The big rig crash near Euclid Street was reported at about 12:45 a.m. Boxes of produce from the truck spilled across lanes, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
AT least two CHP officers helped the driver escape the burning big rig truck. The 43-year-old driver was hospitalized, but details about injuries were not immediately available.
A SigAlert was issued for the northbound lanes of the Santa Ana Freeway just south of the Euclid Street overpass, the CHP said.
