Latest Traffic Updates

A vehicle collided with a dump truck pulling out of a construction zone shortly before 2 a.m. Monday on Interstate Highway 580 near Greenville Road.

California Highway Patrol are still uncertain what caused the collision, but it sparked a chain reaction causing a big rig to overturn into the center divide after it collided with a box truck carrying thousands of pounds of bananas. The big rig caught fire from leaked fuel as fruit spilled all over 580 westbound.



Emergency crews knocked out the fire, according to the CHP. No injuries were reported.

At least two westbound lanes are currently blocked as crews work the scene.

Officials estimate the scene could be cleared by around 10 a.m.
