CHP received a report of an accident involving a bobtail truck that went on top of the center divider around 4:04 a.m.
Officers arrived on the scene and found a damaged center divider and the big rig on top of it. A gray van was also located blocking the middle lane, unknown if it was involved.

One problem that plagues truck drivers routinely is drowsy driving. Accidentally falling asleep at the wheel can lead to a serious truck accident. Stay focused on the road but keep your eyes moving. Periodically shift your eyes to the side-view mirrors, the rear-view mirror, and ahead of the road. Doing this, you can spot a potentially dangerous situation before it happens.
