Firefighters responded about 5:54 to the crash, which involved a semitrailer and minivan, said Erik Scott, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

No one was injured in the collision, Scott said.

The incident left the connector covered with piles of glass, aerial video showed.

California Highway Patrol officers were seen redirecting traffic at the scene immediately after the crash.

The CHP issued a SigAlert that lasted almost five hours. All lanes were reopened by 11 a.m., the Highway Patrol said.
