No one was hurt, but traffic was backed up all the way to the eastbound Edison off ramp.

Just after 8 a.m., a man heading to work was merging onto Highway 240 eastbound from the Edison exit. He didn’t see another vehicle in his blind spot and the two collided. A white truck rolled into the median.

Traffic was cleared within about 20 minutes.  However, several impatient drivers tried to back up the on ramp or perform u-turns in the middle of the highway!
