The southbound lanes of Interstate 5 south of Twin Cities Road reopened Saturday night three hours after a tractor-trailer jackknifed into the freeway’s center divide, according to California Highway Patrol reports.
Traffic backed up along the interstate as motorists were advised to find alternate routes or waited out the delay. CHP officials reported the wreck as a major-injury incident that involved the driver of the tractor-trailer, but the driver’s condition was not known late Saturday.
According to the CHP reports, dispatchers received the first calls about 7:05 p.m. of the jackknifed truck about 1 mile south of Twin Cities Road, with numerous motorists stopping to assist the driver of the big rig.
