Crews shore up freeway tunnel in L.A. after tanker fire

A tanker truck carrying gasoline burst into flames after flipping over at a transition tunnel at the interchange of Route 2 and Interstate 5 in Los Angeles on Saturday. The California Department of Transportation shut down the freeway after 8,500 gallons of gasoline spilled from the truck, causing a large traffic jam and closing the road. Crews are "shoring up the freeway tunnel" and will build a "temporary support system" to be sure the freeway is structurally sound. The freeway connector is still closed to traffic.
