The 101 Freeway was momentarily closed early this morning at about 3 a.m. after one of our beloved taco stands tipped over, blocking the northbound lanes near N. Cahuenga Boulevard, CBS Los Angeles reports.

The taco stand, which appears to be called El Tauro Tacos, was being hauled by a pickup at the time of the crash. The truck was headed south, but when the driver lost control of the car, it smashed through the center divider and the taco stand tipped over in the northbound lanes.

Officials were able to open the southbound lanes by 4:30 a.m. and the northbound lanes by 6 a.m., just in time for morning commutes. No injuries were reported, according to the L.A. Times.
