Pomegranate spill delays traffic on 5 Freeway in Newhall
A big rig carrying pomegranates collided with a box truck on the southbound 5 Freeway in the Newhall area about 3:40 a.m., scattering crates of the fruit into the roadway, said Officer Jennifer Connolly of the California Highway Patrol.
The right-most lane just north of the 14 Freeway remains closed as Caltrans workers clean up the sticky mess.
