LIVERMORE (CBS SF) — Two right lanes of westbound Interstate Highway 580 in Livermore remained blocked and at least one person has been injured after a big rig overturned Saturday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Shortly before 8 a.m., the CHP received a report of an overturned tractor-trailer that had spilled lumber across westbound I-580, just west of Isabel Avenue near Livermore Municipal Airport, the CHP said.

A Sig-alert was issued at 8:13 a.m. and motorists were advised to avoid the area.
