SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Crews are working to clean up the mess left behind when a big rig jackknifed, spilling boxes of produce across the southbound lanes of Highway 99 in Sacramento.
Caltrans reports three lanes have reopened after the big rig crashed near 14th Avenue around 1:45 p.m.
Expect slow traffic southbound SR-99 south of 12th Avenue due to debris blocking all lanes except the fast lane. Please consider using southbound I-5 as an alternate route. Unknown ETO. pic.twitter.com/8JF68W3B5y
