An initial crash occurred about 4:07 a.m. after a disabled car reported in lanes near the State College Boulevard off-ramp was struck by another vehicle, the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log stated.

Less than 10 minutes later, a big rig was also involved in a crash just east of the 57 Freeway, according to the CHP.

There was no immediate word on any injuries as a result of the crashes.

The two incidents prompted officials to issue a SigAlert just after 4:20 a.m. for the closure of all westbound lanes on the 91 Freeway just east of the 57 Freeway, according to the CHP.

Commuters were experiencing heavy delays on the 91 Freeway between the 57 and 55 freeways and were asked to avoid the area if possible.

The lanes were reopened just before 6:30 a.m., according to the CHP.
