No Injuries After Big Rig Crashes in Merced County, Spills Load of Apple Juice

MERCED COUNTY —  Merced maintenance crews are working to reopen part of Highway 99  after a big rig spilled a huge amount of bottled apple juice, just north of Atwater.

Thursday morning, a big rig hit a roadside guardrail and wrapped around the overhead sign at the northbound Highway 99 Westside Boulevard and Bellvue Road exit.

The damage to the big rig trailer caused a large amount of apple juice to spill onto the highway shoulder.

The number three lane is expected to be reopened around 2 p.m.

No one was hurt in the crash.
