Big Rig Crashes Into Hay Bales on 5 Freeway North of LA

A stretch of the 5 Freeway was closed early Wednesday north of Los Angeles when two big rigs crashed.

One person suffered minor injuries in the collision in Castaic, just south of Highway 138. The northbound 5 Freeway was closed in the area.

A hazardous materials crew responded to the scene due to a methane phosphate spill.

It was not immediately clear when the road will reopen.
