Grapes of wrath: 210 Freeway woes to continue until 10 a.m.

A Sig Alert on the 210 Freeway was extended until 10 a.m. Monday after a big rig carrying 35,000 pounds of grapes crashed across the center divider in Monrovia.

Talk about a sticky situation.

The wreck, which blocked two eastbound lanes and three westbound lanes near Myrtle Avenue, proved anything but fruitful for commuters looking for an easy drive to begin the work week.

The traffic jam spread for miles in both directions, with westbound traffic virtually at a standstill as far back as the 605 Freeway, giving drivers plenty to “whine” about.


There were no reported injuries.
