Traffic was moving again in time for the morning rush on Interstate 10 through Cathedral City after a big rig crash shut down three eastbound lanes, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The accident happened just before 3 a.m. near the Date Palm exit.
Officers said the truck driver who was carrying autoparts at the time drifted onto the right shoulder and hit a parked car.
There were no injuries.
The accident happened as the westbound side of the interstate was completely shut down for crews working on the Bob Hope overpass project.
