A crash involving two big rigs on the westbound state Route 60 in Diamond Bar Friday caused a large oil spill and snarled traffic most of the day, the CHP reported.

The crash near Grand Avenue was reported at 10:14 a.m.; there was still one freeway lane shut at 3 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

About 75 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from one of the rigs -- one rig was a gravel hauler, the CHP reported.

No injuries were reported.

The fuel did not go into the drains, just traveled less than a half-mile west of the crash, the CHP reported.

A SigAlert was issued for about 2.5 hours; a far right lane remained closed Friday afternoon, just as rush hour was due to begin.

The 57/60 transition is a sick joke. Whoever designed it belongs in jail.

"Just as rush hour was to begin", of course, multiple lane closures always make the commute more tolerable. And what better place than an already F-ed up interchange?
