A portion of the northbound 5 Freeway was closed for more than two hours in the Newhall Pass south of Santa Clarita after a semi-truck jackknifed and crashed into the roadway’s center divider early Thursday.

The crash was reported shortly after 4 a.m. on the northbound 5 near the transition to westbound Highway 118. The road reopened about 6:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The front end of the truck was perched on top of the median, while the trailer blocked several lanes. No injuries were reported.

It is not clear what caused the crash. However, the road was slick from rain at the time, authorities said.
