PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -

No injuries to report after a big rig jackknifed in Palm Desert.

Police were called to the eastbound side of Interstate 10 just before 11 p.m. Tuesday. That's where the driver of an 18-wheeler says he swerved trying to avoid another car.

He veered off the freeway and hit a light pole near Gateway and Dinah Shore.

The truck ran past the train tracks and landed on its side in the desert.

Hazmat crews were called out to clean up a diesel spill.

Union Pacific temporarily shut down the rail line investigators searched for any damage from the crash.
