Authorities closed the westbound 210 Freeway in Pasadena due to a tractor-trailer reportedly leaking a possible hazardous material on the freeway Monday afternoon.

The substance reportedly smelled like ammonia.

CHP and fire personnel were on scene investigating.

Authorities closed the eastbound 210 Freeway during the investigation. Motorists were redirected to take the 2 Freeway from the 134 Freeway to detour around the closure.
