210 Freeway back open in Arcadia after car hauler crash

Firefighters use foam to douse any remaining flames on a car and semi-truck hauling cars on the 210 Freeway in Arcadia on Monday, May 18, 2015.

All lanes of the 210 Freeway at Santa Anita Avenue are back open after a car hauler lost control, crashed into the center divider and caught fire.

Several other cars were also hit, and witnesses at the scene captured video of one vehicle engulfed in flames. At least on person was hospitalized, authorities said.

Crews worked around the clock to get all lanes back open before Tuesday's rush-hour commute.

Eastbound lanes reopened around midnight and westbound lanes reopened shortly after.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
