An early-morning crash today left a big-rig on its side, shutting down the southbound lanes of the 103 Freeway at Pacific Coast Highway in West Long Beach.

Nobody was hurt in the crash, which happened around 4:20 a.m., according to the Long Beach Fire Department. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the wreck.

A truck that appeared to be carrying scrap rubber and metal was left on its side in the southbound lanes as crews were still trying to clear away the wreckage, around 7:30 a.m.
