Shipping crisis leaves containers stacked up along streets

LOS ANGELES (KYMA, KECY) - The back up of shipping containers at California ports is now spilling over into nearby neighborhoods.

People living in Los Angeles County say truckers are stacking up containers on their streets creating a traffic hazard.

The trucks are trying to unload at a trucking company which has a holding lot near the port of LA.

On Tuesday, one truck lost its load while trying to make a tight turn, crushing a parked car nearby.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt.

The owner of the trucking company housing those containers says area warehouses are full, so there's nowhere else to take them.
