GORMAN, Calif. (KABC) -- As heavy rain continued to fall in Southern California, the southbound I-5 was shut down Tuesday afternoon north of Castaic after a big rig accident, officials said.
The big rig was hauling a long barrier and it damaged a guardrail and left the barrier in the roadway blocking lanes, according to Caltrans.
The incident was reported around 1:40 p.m. just south of Vista Del Lago.
Caltrans announced the beam was removed and lanes were finally reopened by 9:30 p.m. The damaged guardrail will be repaired later.
