Riverside freeway reopens after spill of 100 gallons of olive oil
The eastbound 91 Freeway connector to the 215 Freeway in Riverside was reopened Wednesday evening after crews cleaned up more than 100 gallons of olive oil that had spilled when a tanker truck overturned.
The incident was reported about 1 p.m after the tanker ended up its side, trapping the driver inside, the California Highway Patrol said.
The driver was freed by firefighters. It was unclear whether the driver required medical attention for injuries.
Initially, cars were driving through the oil-slickened connector before it was shut down. The span was reopened about 6 p.m., the CHP said.
