Eastbound I-80 Commute Snarled By Overturned Big Rig

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A big rig carrying canned pineapple overturned today on I-80 and blocked all lanes of traffic for a time.

The truck overturned at around 3 p.m. while merging onto Northbound I-5 from Eastbound I-80.

Hazmat crews are at the scene due to diesel fuel that spilled onto the roadway.

Some of the lanes have re-opened, but traffic is still moving slowly.

Several tow trucks had to be called out to the crash to help upright the truck.

The driver of the vehicle suffered minor injuries.
