SHARE Truck with portable toilets crashes in California

SAN JOSE, Calif. — A major San Francisco Bay Area highway was shut down after a truck carrying portable toilets crashed and spilled blue deodorizer onto the roadway.

California Highway Patrol Officer Matt Rasmussen tells KNTV that the crash on southbound Interstate 280 in San Jose was reported around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday. The toilets on the truck were not carrying sewage but did contain dozens of gallons of blue deodorizer — at least some of which spilled onto the road.

The truck overturned after crashing with a BMW that had spun out. Several other vehicles also crashed. The CHP says all the injuries were minor.

All the lanes were open again around 7 a.m.
