Big Rig Overturns On Highway 65, Spilling Frozen Fruit Mix

LINCOLN (CBS13) — Crews are still working to clean up a slushy mess in Roseville after a big rig overturned on Highway 65 onramp at about 11:30 on Monday night, spilling frozen strawberry puree all over the roadway.

The California Highway Patrol says the big rig driver was going more than twice the speed limit while exiting eastbound Interstate 80 on the Highway 65 connector ramp.

The truck flipped off the freeway onto its side spilling its load of white plastic buckets filled with 43,000 pounds of frozen puree just off the roadway.

Crews will wait until after the morning commute to clean up the mess.

The driver was not hurt.

  1. Poor reporting yet agin by CBS says:

    “The California Highway Patrol says the big rig driver was going more than twice the speed limit while exiting eastbound Interstate 80 on the Highway 65 connector ramp”….Once again, the lazy “journalist” (to call themselves a journalist is in insult to the profession) of CBS is trying to make a “sensational” story.

    If the driver “was” going more than twice the “speed limit”, he would be doing 110 MPH. I highly doubt the truck was traveling that fast. Don’t blame the misinformation on the CHP, this dumb journalist didn’t ask any questions! Someday our “local” stations will hire people of ethics.

      The On-Ramp speed limit is like 25 or 30 becuase of the loop. So, if he was going 55 it is about double.
