Massive paint spill shuts down freeway

November 10, 2009 10:15:52 AM PST
The freeway was closed because of a lot of white stuff. But this is Southern California, so it wasn't snow. The California Highway Patrol had to shut down a major freeway connector yesterday in San Diego after about 200 gallons of paint spilled. It couldn't have happened at a worse time, shortly before 8 a.m. during the morning rush.

The CHP says about 40 buckets of white paint fell off a flatbed truck, as the driver rounded a curve from I-8 onto a state highway.

All that paint -- and not a brush in sight.
