A crash involving a fuel tanker that was carrying 4,800 gallons of gasoline caused a big mess on the 5 Freeway in Sun Valley.

All lanes were shut between Sunland Boulevard and Hollywood Way Thursday morning.

The fuel tanker collided with two vehicles around 10:35 p.m. Wednesday and started to leak fuel onto the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Southbound lanes reopened just before 4 a.m., and northbound lanes opened around 5:30 a.m.

None of the drivers were injured.

Officials said that gasoline did not seep into any drains.
