SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CNS) - A small oil spill on a busy freeway onramp today caused a handful of vehicles to slip and slide, but no serious crashes or injuries were reported.
However, one vehicle did hit a guardrail on the Friars Road onramp to the northbound Interstate 15 before the California Highway Patrol closed one lane for clean-up.
The spill was the result of an unrelated auto accident in which oil was "dragged into the roadway" about 1:20 p.m., according to CHP Sgt. Fred Hartman.
The right turn lane to the onramp was briefly shut down while Caltrans workers cleaned up the spill, Hartman said.
