A big-rig tanker collided with another truck on the 5 Freeway, spilling milk on the busy artery and forcing the closure of all southbound lanes at Magic Mountain Parkway.

The accident was reported by the California Highway Patrol shortly before 9 p.m. The agency opened one lane a short while later but traffic was heavily backed up in the area.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the scene. At least one person was reported injured.

No other details were immediately available.
