Truck Strikes Two Vehicles After Entering One-Way Traffic Zone Against Traffic Light

traffic accidentAlready impeded traffic on Highway 299, got a bit more complicated this morning after a vehicle collision within a construction zone occurred around 7:27 a.m.

West of the East Fork Campground at mile marker 32.40, a vehicle traveling the wrong direction within the construction zone struck two vehicles before overturning. A source reported that a silver Dodge Ram pickup entered the one-way construction zone against a red-light traffic stop. Fortunately, according to the CHP Traffic Incident Information page, no one was injured during the collision.

Buddy’s Towing is responding for a Dodge dually flipped on its side, blocking the roadway.

Caltrans Quickmap shows traffic in the area severely impacted. Please avoid the area if possible.

Please remember that information gathered from initial reports is subject to revision as more facts become available.

Just wait till they get to the area down by Glendale, where they painted the stripes to merge with no signage and the k rails not set up yet If they don’t finish that soon there’s an accident bound to happen. Way to go caltrans. I thought that’s why you have 3 caltrans guys standing around babysitting these jobs.

i just called CalTrans in regard to this problem. The merges on 299 at Essex and North Bank on/off ramps are extremely dangerous and without any signs!!! Hopefully they will be corrected.

Probably drives a big truck to overcompensate a lack of physical attributes.

Isn’t there an inverse proportion in there somewhere?

Yes, there is. When I went to buy a big truck, the car dealer called my doctor, and now I drive one of the smallest cars on the market.

If the vehicle was insured before this, it’s not likely to be insured after this.

Hard to imagine rolling over a 1 1/2 ton wide axle truck unless it’s driver error. Otherwise you’d have to make an honest effort to make it happen

Driving up and onto oncoming traffic maybe wedged them over. Empty, it’s only really the extra weight of two wheels, and maybe a few more leaf springs.
