Update: 9:50 a.m. Friday, CHP reports Sig-alert canceled, lanes of traffic restored at 9:08 a.m.
Morning commute traffic was slow on northbound I-680 north of Rudgear Road because of a crash that left an ice cream truck on its side around 7:15 a.m. Friday.
Gasoline was reportedly leaking from the ice cream truck, said CHP Officer James Evans. Three northbound lanes in the Alamo-Walnut Creek area were blocked as of 7:40 a.m. Friday. A red taxi was also involved in the crash. No injuries were reported.
This is close to the area of a massive I-680 blockage on Sept. 4 in the investigation of a fatal shooting during a routine CHP traffic stop on the shoulder of I-680 southbound.
For certain northbound commuters, the morning was shot. Roughly an hour later, there was an injury crash on northbound I-680 at Crow Canyon Road, blocking two lanes, according to KCBS.
