Truck crash shuts down 101 Freeway in Hollywood

A  truck struck the center divider of the 101 Freeway in Hollywood early Monday morning, sending debris into lanes and briefly causing a full freeway closure. 

The crash was reported at about 3:08 a.m. on the northbound freeway, south of Cahuenga Boulevard, said California Highway Patrol Officer Elizabeth Kravig. There were no reported injuries, she said.

Northbound and southbound lanes were closed, but the southbound lanes, shut down by debris on the roadway, reopened around 4:26 a.m.

Northbound lanes were closed as a tow truck tried to upright the truck, which is possibly a taco truck, Kravig said. The three left lanes of the northbound freeway reopened around 6 a.m.
