Big rig overturns on Interstate 5, blocks one lane

A big rig overturned on Interstate 5 near Arena Boulevard Sunday afternoon, blocking one lane, the California Highway Patrol said.

A tire blew out on a truck traveling southbound around 4 p.m., causing the truck to swerve and sideswipe the big rig, said Chad Hertzel, spokesman for CHP.

The far right lane on I-5 is currently blocked, Hertzell said. The unidentified drivers suffered minor injuries, Hertzell added.
