we he have been talking about this all morning. northbound 880 at mission boulevard. there is a chemical spill and this spill on interstate 880 as prompted chp to close a heavyly used exit that stem from a crash that happened overnight and now perhaps even another crash has happened. let's go to -- standing right there and i understand another crash just happened where you are. >> reporter: yeah. it was about five minutes ago. we heard the screeching and heard the crash and let me just show you what is going on here at the mission boulevard exit off northbound 880. right where you see that front loader there is a car next to. that's a car involved in the collisiont. hit another car. we aren't sure what happened. it's raining. it if it -- if they slowdown. got confused because this exit was closed it was -- it's closed right now. it has been for sour hours and that's because a truck that is on -- a tow truck hit sand barrels where you see that front loader. it's working right now to
6:04 am
remove the sand barrel that it hit and it spilled a lot of chemicals here. let's go to video that was taken earlier this morning. this all started out 1:00 a.m. the chp said a truck with pool chemicals lost control while traveling on 880 and hit the sand barrels and the guardrail here. the driver was not injured but the chp took him into custody for driving under the club. the problem was he was carrying 25-gallons of chemical and two gallons of acid spilled on to the freeway. the fire department put out -- put out -- on hazardous material suits and wash away what they could. cal trans needed to call in a hazardous material crew that could do a complete cleaning. none of the temperatures went in. caltrans wanted to replace all the sand bare he that were hit by the truck and so right now back out here live that is what you are look at. they are removinged sand
6:05 am
barrels that got damage from that earlier crash and then they are will have to wait until cal trans you brings out new sand barrels. this could have an impact just because a lot of people who are going up to the east bay though that is -- considered opposite drive. they go to 680. just watch out for this. this -- a secondary crash that happened in the last five minutes. that is not the only one that almost -- that happened here. earlier about -- i want to say 20 minutes before that. we heard a big rig scratching. its been a little scary to be here on the side of the freeway. we have our safety vests on. this cal trans and chp cars with a lot of lights out here. still everybody slow down. back to you in the studio. >> that's the best advice. it's tricky for everybody to give yourself plenty of time. one of the busiest roads still closed this morning because of flooding.
