A tanker truck carrying milk overturned this morning on a freeway transition road near downtown Los Angeles at 10 a.m, spilling a portion of its calcium-rich cargo onto the freeway.

A SigAlert was forecast through the afternoon, with CalTrans tweeting that the road was expected to be re-opened by 4 p.m. The driver was hospitalized in good condition, according to a Los Angeles Fire Department alert, NBC reports.
