NEWS24-680 reader Scott Dinsdale was on the scene this morning after a big rig carrying 80,000 pounds of coal took evasive action after tangling with a small passenger car and lost its load on eastbound Highway 4.
The CHP arrived, took a look and called for a SIG Alert, shutting down the freeway for a time. As of 7:40 a.m. one lane of traffic was worming around the site as workers attempted to clean up the mess.
Our thanks to Scott for passing along the photo!
Why is 80,000 lbs of coal in Northern California? Where is it from? Where was it going?
In answer to your question, the coal was west bound on Highway 24 and headed for the 18th century.
