Semi-truck hauling oranges crashes on I-5 in Carmel Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - A tractor-trailer hauling oranges crashed on a freeway transition in Carmel Valley early Tuesday, which prompted a closure that stretched into the morning commute.
   
The semi truck hit a barrier on the ramp from southbound Interstate 5 to Carmel Valley Road and state Route 56 around 2:45 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The trucker was not injured.
   
The transition was shut down so the load of oranges could be transferred to a second truck, according to CHP officials. A SigAlert was issued and is now reopened as of about 8:15 a.m.
