Big rig carrying Christmas trees overturns

December 10, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A big rig carrying Christmas trees overturned Friday morning, causing the closure of the 101 N to 110 S connector for a few hours.

The incident was reported at 4:30 a.m. The big rig was on its side, but the trees did not spill out of the truck.

The closure was expected to last until noon, but crews cleaned up the scene and lanes re-opened earlier than expected.

Commuters were advised to take other routes to get into downtown L.A.
