RICHMOND (CBS SF) — A motorcyclist suffered minor injuries in a crash caused by a gravel spill on Interstate 580 in Richmond Thursday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The spill was reported at about 1:30 p.m. on the highway’s westbound lanes, east of Canal Boulevard.

A gravel truck lost part of its load causing all westbound lanes to be blocked, CHP Officer Sean Wilkenfeld said.

Wilkenfeld believes the truck did not stop and the CHP wasn’t able to locate it.

Caltrans crews responded and were able to sweep up the spill, allowing all lanes to reopen by about 4 p.m.
