A cement truck overturned on state Route 125 in Chula Vista Thursday, injuring one person injured and crippling the morning commute.
The truck tipped over in the northbound lanes approaching H Street shortly after 7 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. Photos taken at the scene showed the wrecked truck blocking both lanes and cement spilled onto the roadway.
The truck was also leaking diesel fuel, which prompted authorities to summon a HazMat team, the CHP reported.
The northbound freeway was closed following the crash, as was the onramp from H Street. Northbound vehicles were being diverted to the southbound freeway.
