LOS ANGELES (AP) - A section of Interstate 5 near downtown Los Angeles remains closed after a tanker flipped, spilled its load of gasoline and caught fire.
Transportation officials said all northbound lanes of Interstate 5 were closed Sunday and they were unsure when the freeway would reopen. Workers were trying to shore up a tunnel-like underpass connecting State Route 2 and Interstate 5 where the fire occurred.
Traffic was jammed Saturday for hours after the tanker overturned and sent its 8,500-gallon load of gasoline into the Los Angeles River and underground systems. No injuries were reported.
