Just after 4 p.m. a big rig overturned on I-680 and caused very heavy traffic between Sacramento and the Bay Area.

According to California Highway Patrol, the semi truck was taking eastbound I-80 to I-680 south when it turned over. The truck slid down the guardrail and then toppled over into the dirt along the highway.

The truck driver’s load included 40,000 lbs of wine.

The driver of the big rig died in the incident. He was the only person affected by the crash, and no other cars were involved.

Greg Cotta filed this report.
