A big-rig crash near the Gilman Street exit of Interstate Highway 80 in Berkeley snarled traffic in both directions Tuesday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The big-rig crashed from the eastbound direction into the highway's center divider at about 6:30 p.m., leaving the tractor on the divider and partially in the westbound lanes, the trailer in the eastbound lanes, and concrete sprayed into the road.
Two westbound lanes and three eastbound lanes were closed until about 10:30 p.m.
At least two other vehicles were involved, including a Chevy Tahoe that was towed as the driver was transported to a hospital. The extent of the driver's injuries and whether there were any passengers in the Tahoe is unknown.
Traffic in the eastbound direction was backed up to the Bay Bridge toll plaza, and in the westbound direction drivers were delayed back to El Cerrito.
The trailer is full of mail, but no mail was lost in the crash.
