The 10 Freeway had to be shutdown because of a scented oil spill

The nightmare that is traveling on Thanksgiving got off to a fantastic start on Tuesday as authorties shutdown the eastbound 10 freeway for several hours after a scented mineral oil spill.

The spill, which was first reported to be “lubricant,” happened about 4 am near Golf Center Parkway.

The Desert Sun reports the “lubricant” was in fact mineral oil that was was in barrels that fell from the truck.

Everything reopened at 6:30 am.

But, according to KESQ’s Jeremy Chen, the odor is quite pungent.
