A crash on the 210 Freeway in Glendora snarled traffic amid a wet commute Monday morning.

The delays began just before 3 a.m. when someone crashed a van into the center divider near Grand Avenue on the westbound side of the freeway, California Highway Patrol Officer Polizzi said.

The driver appeared to have abandoned the van, which was facing sideways and blocking lanes, Polizzi said.

Fuel from the vehicle spilled across the freeway, prompting officials to issue a Sig Alert for the closure of all westbound lanes beginning at 3:15 a.m., the CHP’s traffic incident log stated.

The number three and four lanes were reopened about 6:15 a.m. The carpool, one and two lanes remained closed at that time.

The Sigalert was later canceled and all lanes were reopened, Officer Baldonado confirmed.
