LAKEWOOD -- The southbound 605 Freeway was at least partially off-limits to drivers until mid-afternoon Wednesday as a cleanup crew attended to a crash scene where a big rig overturned and spilled thousands of gallons of diesel fuel the previous night.
The crash happened about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday near where the 605 meets Carson Street. The California Highway Patrol’s online incident log noted a report of a “really strong smell” of fuel around the crash scene.
The crash led authorities to order a full shutdown of the southbound 605 near the site of the collision for more than 12 hours. The freeway was not completely reopened until about 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The crash and fuel spill were so severe that authorities ordered an overnight closure of all of the 605’s southbound lanes, as well as the northbound carpool lane, overnight.
