All lanes of the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway reopened just before 5:00 a.m. Monday in Commerce after a big-rig crashed and exploded into flames a day earlier, authorities said.
The fiery crash prompted the CHP to close the freeway, causing a traffic nightmare.
The truck driver was burned and suffered critical injuries, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
A second person, believed to be on a street below, suffered moderate injuries, officials said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
