Big rig carrying fruit crashes on 210 Freeway, creates jam
Monday’s morning commute started off horribly for drivers in the San Gabriel Valley when a big rig carrying fruit overturned on the 210, blocking lanes in both directions in Monrovia for most of the morning.
The big rig crashed through the center divider just before 5 a.m. near Myrtle Avenue. Three westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes will be blocked until about 9:15 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
Westbound traffic appeared to be backed up to the 605 freeway.
The trailer is estimated to weigh about 35,000 pounds, according to the CHP.
