Traffic Blocked in Sacramento After Tanker Truck Overturns
A tractor-trailer hauling a tanker overturned along U.S. 50 westbound on May 19, which caused lanes to backup. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the accident happened at around 1:41 in the afternoon near the northbound Howe Avenue entrance ramp. Two of the lanes westbound were blocked by the accident and traffic backed up to Watt Avenue. The Howe Avenue entrance ramp to the highway was shut down also as responders with the Sacramento Fire Department cleared the scene.
