On June 7, 2013 at approximately 4:00 p.m., a commercial truck pulling a trailer loaded with cement blocks and bags of lime was traveling northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 167 when twenty-two (22) bags of lime fell off the trailer onto the right northbound lane. The bags of lime broke open spilling onto the traffic lane.
ODOT personnel and a sweeper responded to the scene to cleanup the spilled lime while the traffic lane remained closed. Estimated time for completion was about 7:30 p.m.
Initial inspection of the involved commercial truck didn't yield any clues why the lime bags fell off the trailer. All load securement procedures appeared to be followed. No citations were issued at this time.
