LOS ANGELES (AP) - Up to 10 big-rigs have collided in an Interstate 5 truck bypass tunnel in the Newhall Pass north of Los Angeles.
Rainy weather may be a factor in causing Tuesday morning's the jumble in the tunnel 25 miles north of downtown. A jackknifed big-rig in the tunnel apparently caused the chain-reaction crashes.
KTTV-TV says firefighters had to pry a trucker out of his demolished rig. It's unclear if there are other injuries.
The California Highway Patrol says the southbound truck bypass tunnel is expected to be closed throughout the morning while the wreckage is cleared and spilled diesel fuel is mopped up.
