SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A major San Francisco Bay Area highway was shut down after a truck carrying portable toilets crashed and spilled blue deodorizer onto the roadway.
California Highway Patrol Officer Matt Rasmussen tells KNTV (http://bit.ly/ZDGop9 ) that the crash on southbound Interstate 280 in San Jose was reported around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday. The toilets on the truck were not carrying sewage but did contain dozens of gallons of blue deodorizer — at least some of which spilled onto the road.
The truck overturned after crashing with a BMW that had spun out. Several other vehicles also crashed. The CHP says all the injuries were minor.
All the lanes were open again around 7 a.m.
