Drivers cited for picking up thousands of spilled crushed cans


Thousands of cans rolled onto all lanes of Interstate Highway 880 Tuesday morning, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman. The CHP received a report of a spill on northbound Highway 880 from Whipple Road to Tennyson Road around 9:30 a.m., CHP Officer Joseph Fowler said

Fowler attributed the spillage to some type of truck heading for a recycling center.

Initially, the cans covered all lanes of the highway but they drifted into the center lane and accumulated along the edges, according to Fowler.
Fowler said citations were being issued to drivers who stopped to pick up the crushed cans.
