Banana spill on I-580 causing 3-hour backup into Pleasanton

CHP says left lanes could be closed through 8 a.m.

A big-rig crash on westbound Interstate Highway 580 in Livermore is causing serious traffic delays this morning, up to three hours as of 6:30 a.m.

The California Highway Patrol said a big rig overturned just before 2 a.m. in the westbound inside lane of the freeway at Greenville Road. t least two westbound lanes were blocked as crews work the scene.

The truck was carrying crates of bananas that spilled onto the median of the freeway.

Emergency crews also have to contend with possible fuel spillage from the truck, according to the CHP.
