A tractor trailer overturned on the 10 Freeway in Colton this morning, forcing the closure of a transition road and several lanes.

The driver lost control on the transition road between the eastbound 10 and the northbound 215 Freeway. San Bernardino County firefighters received a call about the crash at 3:57 a.m., dispatchers said.

Paramedics took the driver to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The California Highway Patrol initially closed several lanes of the eastbound 10, but lanes were reopened at 6:28 a.m. The Sig Alert was canceled at 6:42 a.m.

The transition road remains closed for an unknown duration.
