PLEASANTON (KRON)--Lanes on Interstate Highway 680 in Pleasanton have re-opened following a crash involving a big-rig overnight.
 
The California Highway Patrol received a report around 9:50 p.m. Sunday that a big rig  with an attached trailer driving northbound on Highway 680 at Bernal Avenue  jackknifed into the roadway's concrete center divider and landed on its side in the highway's southbound lanes.
     
At least one passing car was hit by debris from the crash, and  several concrete junks littered the roadway, according to the CHP. Police say the driver suffered only minor injuries in the crash, and was not  hospitalized and no other injuries were reported.
 
The crash shutdown all lanes of I-680 for about seven hours while crews worked to clear the scene. All lanes were re-opened by 7 a.m. Monday.
