Semi Accident Stops Downtown Traffic


A semi truck crashed along I-5 near the J Street exit, tying up slow morning traffic even more in Wednesday’s rain.

The truck was blocking all lanes for a short time before crews could open up the shoulder for traffic. The truck also started leaking diesel fuel and hazardous materials crews had to respond.

The accident happened around 9 a.m., as of 10 a.m. CHP is reporting the backup is affecting Highway 50 and other roads leading onto Business 80.

The semi crashed with a SUV. One driver complained of pain, the other is fine.

Drivers heading north are being told to take the Q Street exit.
