Another big tomato spill reported on California interstate


This week saw its second huge tomato spill in California after a truck crashed south of Elk Grove on Friday morning.

According to reports, the crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on September 2 on southbound I-5 near the Grove Boulevard offramp near Elk Grove, California.

Local firefighters said, “Units arrived to find a commercial truck had dumped its load of tomatoes.”

No injuries were reported.

Video captured at the scene shows active lanes of traffic covered in smashed tomatoes.

It isn’t yet clear what led up to the crash or whether other vehicles were involved.

A similar crash happened on I-80 in Vacaville, California on Monday, August 29 when a truck hauling tomatoes crashed, leaving the interstate covered in debris. Five other vehicles crashed in the slippery aftermath.

It’s been a rough week for pasta lovers. On top of the two tomato spills, a truck traveling in Memphis, Tennessee, spilled a large amount of alfredo sauce along northbound Interstate 55 near McLemore Avenue following a crash on Tuesday evening.
