BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Traffic was slowed for several hours along Highway 99 in south Bakersfield Monday afternoon due to oranges that spilled in the roadway.
Several lanes were temporarily closed along Highway 99 at the White Lane overpass after a report of a trailer that spilled its load of oranges at just after 1:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol and Caltrans.
Caltrans had some fun when alerting motorists to the trouble on social media.
“A juicy update, though likely not ap-peeling to our followers with traffic zest up,” the agency said on X, the site formerly known as Twitter.
Lanes were cleared a little before 5 p.m. No injuries were reported in the incident.
