Traffic snarled near Sacramento International Airport after big rig flips
A big rig hauling concrete panels flipped on its side Wednesday morning near Sacramento International Airport.
Traffic around the airport was backed up on southbound Interstate 5 after the big rig flipped over. The California Highway Patrol said that heavy panels shifted on the rig’s trailer about 7:45 a.m. as the driver made the transition from the Airport Boulevard on-ramp to southbound I-5.
The trailer overturned, spilling the load onto the highway and scattering broken concrete. The truck driver was walking and appeared to be shaken after the crash, according to a California Highway Patrol traffic incident website.
