A big rig was overturned on the northbound lanes of Highway 101 in San Jose Wednesday afternoon. 

The vehicle flipped to its side at around 3:26 p.m. on the offramp between the highway and Old Bayshore Highway. 

The offramp will be closed for about two hours, but crews are working to clear the lanes “as fast as possible,” CHP said. 

The agency also reported gas leaking from the big rig.
