Up to 36,000 gallons of raw sewage may have spilled onto Highway 101 after a sanitation truck crashed and overturned on Wednesday afternoon.
The accident happened just after 12:30 p.m. near the San Antonio Road off-ramp. According to preliminary CHP reports, the truck was traveling northbound when a black sedan cut off it off in an attempt to take the off-ramp. The truck driver then veered right, hit crash attenuators on the shoulder and lost control of the vehicle.
The truck then traveled across all lanes and struck a white sedan before hitting the center median wall and overturning. The truck landed mostly in the southbound lanes, according to the CHP. No injuries have been reported.
The crash impact ruptured the truck's sewage tank, and CHP officers say they were treating the incident as a hazmat situation.
At 3:30 p.m., the CHP reported that all northbound lanes had reopened. A little after 5 p.m. all lanes were reported open.
