MODESTO (CBS13) – Drivers slugged through an extremely slow morning commute on Highway 99 in Modesto Tuesday morning after a big rig flipped and lost its load.

The accident happened in the northbound lanes of Highway 99 at Briggsmore Avenue.

The big rig apparently collided with a car and landed on its side losing its load of wood.

The wood landed across the lanes of traffic and was hit by several cars, creating even more congestion.

No one was hurt in the crash.
