The crash occurred on the 101 Freeway just north of Cahuenga Boulevard around 5:20 a.m., the CHP’s incident log stated.

The tanker was hit by the car, which then got stuck under the tank, according to the incident log.

Video from the scene shot 40 minutes after the crash showed the car appeared to have been pulled out and was next to the tanker.

Three lanes were shut down and a SigAlert was issued around 5:45 a.m. The alert was canceled around 6:15 a.m. as all lanes were reopened.

At one point, traffic was backed up for about a mile, according to a traffic map on Google Maps.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured
