Overturned tanker on 10 Freeway snarls traffic through Rialto
An overturned tanker on the westbound 10 Freeway has forced all but one lane to be shut down in that direction and is snarling the morning commute through the Rialto and Fontana areas Friday.
The CHP incident log reports that the accident occurred around 2:39 a.m. Friday when a Toyota Camry struck a gas tanker on the right shoulder near the Cedar Avenue exit.
CHP officials say the far left lane of the freeway was opened around 6:45 a.m. According to SigAlert, traffic is stop-and-go from the Mt. Vernon Avenue exit to the Cedar Avenue exit.
Rialto police are taking motorists off the freeway at the Riverside Avenue exit.
Officials are encouraging drivers to take the 210 and 60 freeways westbound and Valley Boulevard as alternative routes. It was not clear now long lanes would remained closed.
