Big Rig Crash in Rio Vista
RIO VISTA, CA (February 28, 2019) – Thursday morning at 9:30 AM, two big rigs were involved in an accident on Highway 12 and Highway 113.
At the time of the crash, one truck was hauling a trailer that became separated upon impact. The other big rig was carrying wine that washed over all the lanes following the accident. As a result, thirty gallons of oil was spilled throughout the road.
Westbound traffic was diverted around the crash. Both drivers were injured in the accident. However, the extent of their injuries and current medical status is unknown.
After the accident , the lanes were blocked a second time. An unrelated semi truck attempted to make a u-turn onto eastbound Highway 12 and got stuck in the mud.
There has been no further information released regarding the circumstances leading up to the incident. At this time, an investigation is being conducted.
When you are driving next to or near a semi-truck, keep your distance as they have larger blind spots and less visibility than smaller vehicles. In addition, be mindful of your trucks height and weight when gaining speed or making turns. Always scan your surroundings for other vehicles to prevent yourself and others from being involved in an accident.
