An overturned big rig caused major traffic delays Friday morning on Highway 101, near the Interstate 880 interchange in San Jose, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP responded to the crash at about 7:45 a.m. and issued a Sig-alert for closure of all the southbound 101 lanes at about 8 a.m. Crews brought the rig upright and cleared it from the roadway at about 10:30 a.m., but the traffic damage was done.

Until that point, southbound traffic on Highway 101 was being diverted to I-880 southbound, the CHP said. The connector ramp from I-880 southbound to southbound 101 also was closed during the cleanup.

It was not immediately clear if the crash involved any injuries.
