A city sanitation truck overturned Friday on the Glendale Avenue onramp to the Ventura (134) Freeway going east.

The onramp was reopened about 4:45 p.m. The truck was full of about 40,000 to 50,000 pounds of trash, which did not fall out, Bell said.

Officials were at a loss to explain how a 53-year-old Glendale woman drove her Mercedes about a mile up a concrete Verdugo Wash channel Thursday before barreling to a stop just short of an 8-foot drop-off into the L.A. River. The woman, whom police didn't identify Thursday, entered the wash about 11 a.m. at Glenoaks Boulevard and Kenilworth Avenue after reportedly confusing the concrete-lined channel for a freeway on-ramp, officials said. About a mile later, and after reaching speeds of up to 70 mph, the woman finally stopped after barreling down about nine, 3-foot long steps.

Meter lights are now operational at all on-ramps to the Foothill (210) Freeway in Crescenta Valley and La Cañada.
