A jackknifed semi truck has been cleared from where it was blocking northbound traffic on Interstate 5 near Laguna Boulevard, the California Highway Patrol reports

The truck driver lost control in the rain about a mile north of Laguna Boulevard at about 6:20 a.m., said Officer Rich Wetzel, CHP spokesman.

All lanes are now open, though the backup had stretched back into San Joaquin County, so it may take time for the traffic jam to clear.

No injuries or spilled cargo was reported.
