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.
