A collision between two trucks on the eastbound 210 Freeway has left one of them laying on its side and over the divider, blocking Metro light trail tracks, according to live reports on KTLA and an e-mail from Metro authorities.

The incident, which occurred around 8:03 a.m. over San Gabriel and Sierra Madre boulevards (map), has delayed Metro Gold Line service for up to 20 minutes as officials work to remove the tractor-trailer from between the Sierra Madre Villa Station and Allen Station in Pasadena.

Buses are currently taking passengers between the two stations and the scene could cleared by 11:30 a.m. The HOV, #1 and #2 lanes are also blocked.
