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.
