VERNON (CBS) — An overturned big rig dumped a load of onions on an onramp to the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway in Vernon early Thursday, closing the onramp, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The big rig went through a guardrail and tipped over at 3:02 a.m. at the Bandini Boulevard onramp, the CHP said. The driver was not injured.

The onramp was closed while crews worked to fix the guardrail, remove the big rig, and load the spilled onions onto another vehicle. The closure was continuing more than five hours later.

    Thank Bill Clinton, another left winger who gives to the poor, lazy, welfare and ILLEGAL ALIENS. He implemented NAFTA, so now ILLEGAL ALIENS with their piece of junk trucks can drive them on the roads you travel. They break the Vehicle code all the time.
