The crash happened about 3:45 p.m. at the Brookhurst Street onramp.

At one point traffic was backed up to Knott Avenue, officials reported.

As of 6:30 p.m., one eastbound lane still remained closed.

A CHP dispatcher initially described the vehicle as a big rig, but an officer later clarified that it was a box truck carrying fruit.

No injuries were reported in the crash.

It’s not clear why the vehicle crashed, and the driver of the truck was not apprehended, according to the CHP Officer Graham.
