Truck driver blames burrito for crash on I-5

WOLF CREEK, Ore. (AP) - A truck driver blamed his breakfast burrito for a crash on Interstate 5 that scattered a load of building materials across all four lanes of the freeway near Wolf Creek in Southern Oregon.

The Mail Tribune newspaper reports that 62-year-old Bradley Lavern Ruonavaara of Murphy told Oregon State Police troopers he lost control of his tractor-trailer rig on a curve when he reached for his burrito.

Drivers at the scene of the Monday morning crash helped clear 60-foot building joists from the southbound lanes.

But northbound lanes of I-5 were blocked for nearly an hour.

Ruonavaara was treated for minor injuries and cited.
