Upside Down Big Rig Creates Traffic Mess In Tracy

TRACY (CBS13) – An unusual accident in Tracy backed up traffic after the driver lost control and flipped the truck completely over onto its roof.

The accident happened on Interstate 580 at Bird Road near the Interstate 5 split.  The driver says he hit a curb at the shoulder, overcorrected and landed upside down before skidding to a stop in the middle of the roadway.  Amazingly, the driver was unhurt.

A CHP officer tells CBS13 he has never seen anything like it during his nearly 30 years on the job.

The truck is loaded with UPS packages that were to be shipped all over the country.
