A semitrailer truck hauling corn mash to a local dairy overturned on State Route 99 at the SR 152 interchange, blocking lanes and snarling traffic, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver, a man from Stockton, sustained only cuts and bruises, and other minor injuries in the slow speed crash. His name was not released.
CHP Sgt. John Johnson said the crash occurred about 8:30 Tuesday night in a light rain and windstorm. No other vehicles were thought to be involved.
“It was a fully loaded, open trailer big rig, hauling processed cattle feed southbound on SR 99 (and was traveling) to westbound 152. It wasn’t a high-speed crash. As far as we can tell, the driver just took the curve too fast, lost control and overturned. When the truck overturned, all the feed spilled into both lanes of the transition road onto SR 152. We had both transition lanes blocked with the overturned semi truck and several tons of corn meal,” Johnson said...
