The crash happened at about 10:30 p.m. Monday night on the northbound Pacific Coast Highway off-ramp. The crash spilled giant bales of hay onto freeway lanes.

A Sigalert was issued for the off-ramp while several tow trucks with forklifts were called in to help reload the bales onto the flatbed truck that lost them.

All southbound lanes were closed for a short time while authorities worked to clear the scene. The southbound 710 Freeway to southbound PCH were reopened to traffic, but lanes to northbound PCH remain closed while crews work to clear the mess.
