A big rig crash early Thursday shut down two lanes and the J and P streets exits.  Crews had to clean up a fuel spill from the crash, slowing traffic to a crawl in that portion of the freeway. 

9 a.m. Authorities warned commuters to avoid northbound Interstate 5 at J Street Thursday morning after a big rig crash.

The crash occurred at 5:45 a.m. and caused fuel to spill on the roadway.
