Highway 163 reopens after paint spill in Mission Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol has reopened a major freeway connector in San Diego after cleaning up about 200 gallons of paint that spilled off a truck.

The CHP said Monday that about 40 buckets of white paint fell off the truck's flatbed as the driver rounded a curve onto eastbound Interstate 8 from northbound state Highway 163.

Officer Jesse Udovich says the connector reopened shortly before 2 p.m., about six hours after the spill occurred during morning rush hour. No injuries were reported.
