Highway 50 Traffic Backed Up For Miles After SUV Hits 2 Other Vehicles

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Eastbound Highway 50 near Watt Avenue is now clear after a pickup truck collided with a Caltrans vehicle and overturned Monday afternoon, officials say.

Caltrans closed eastbound Highway 50, which caused a traffic backup that stretched for miles to 51st Street.

The employee involved in the accident did not complain of pain, Caltrans says, but was transported to a hospital as a precaution.

The condition of the driver in the pickup is not known.
