LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Authorities say a big rig tumbled off the transition road from the eastbound Artesia (91) Freeway to the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway.

The California Highway Patrol issued a Sigalert for the transition road and the Artesia on-ramp to the 710 Freeway. It’s not known when the roadway will be clear.

The truck’s driver, who is in his 40s, was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries, Long Beach fire Capt. Jackawa Jackson said.
