LOS ANGELES (AP) — Twenty-one tons of honey will keep many Southern California spouses from hearing “honey, I’m home!” anytime soon.

Nearly all lanes of northbound Interstate 605 are closed during rush hour after a big rig overturned spilling 42,000 pounds of honey.

California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball says four of the five lanes have been closed after a big rig turned over at about 2 p.m. just north of State Route 60.

Caltrans workers are on scene helping to clear the mess as well as a tow-truck to help upright the tractor.
