SACRAMENTO, Calif — Caltrans gave the all clear for northbound Interstate 5 after a big rig crashed near Metro Air Parkway Monday 

The crash was reported just after 3:30 a.m. A big rig went off the road and hit a guard rail and sign, according to California Highway Patrol. 

The big rig caught fire. It was carrying insulation material and crews were working to clean it up. The driver was taken to a hospital with moderate to major injuries, according to CHP.

Caltrans expected to fully reopen the roadway around 6 p.m. One lane reopened on southbound Interstate 5 near the Sacramento International Airport earlier Monday, and the all clear was given for northbound lanes just before 5 p.m.
