The driver was being followed by California Highway Patrol units as it transitioned to the westbound 60 Freeway in El Monte about 5:15 a.m.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed the trailer sparking behind the truck, which appeared to be traveling at about 60 or 70 mph.

Shortly before 5:30 a.m., the driver transitioned the truck to the northbound 5 Freeway on the East L.A. interchange.
