[UPDATE 3:55 p.m.] Big Rig Crash Off Hwy 101 Near Big Lagoon
About 7:13 a.m., a big rig overturned off Hwy 101 near Big Lagoon near mile marker 11, according to the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page.
No one was injured and both the tractor and the trailer are off the road and on their sides.
According to Humboldt County resident Joe Filgas,
I was first upon the scene right after it happened (I did not witness the crash). The truck went off the east side of the highway and was overturned. The driver was out and standing on a pull out in the west side. I stopped and spoke with him. He was uninjured other than a minor scrape on his arm. He had just called in to his company who was calling emergency services. He said he had just come around the corner and it felt top heavy and then flipped. He was thankful he wasn’t blocking the road at all. I told him the main thing was he was safe. I then left and made it to my destination, Freshwater Lagoon where an ambulance was running that way Code 2.
