Spilled apricots jam up I-5, Highway 50 connector

SACRAMENTO - A spilled load of apricots caused traffic to bunch up on the connector from southbound Interstate 5 to eastbound Highway 50 Thursday afternoon.

Officer Michael Bradley of the California Highway Patrol said the big rig swerved to avoid an accident, causing some of its crates to topple.

The connector was shut down around 12:10 p.m.

Another trailer was requested to help haul the spilled load of fruit from the scene, said Bradley.

One lane was open as of 1:10 p.m., but the other two lanes were expected to remain closed through 2:30 p.m. due to cleanup efforts.
