The impact of the crash separated the truck, which was left with heavy engine damage, from its trailer, which had been loaded up with 38,000 pounds of milk.

The driver was not hurt.

There were no reports of milk spilled on the roadway.

The California Highway Patrol said two right lanes and the Huntington Drive on-ramp to the eastbound 210 Freeway would be blocked until at least 3 p.m. for cleanup and repair.

    Milk is measured in gallons, not pounds! There have been way too many errors in your written reports lately and on your prompter for field reporters. Do your home work and edit grammar and drift facts before you post it! Good grief you think your parents would have gotten a better education for the money they spent on your college education.
