Semi Truck Crashes on I-5 in Oceaside, Causing Traffic Snarl

OCEANSIDE, CA (August 29, 2019) – During the morning hours, a semi truck crashed on I-5 in Oceanside, causing a traffic snarl. The August 27 incident occurred on the southbound side of the freeway, close to Camp Pendleton and Harbor Drive.

The time was roughly a little after 10:30 a.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

Reports say a vehicle—described as a flatbed truck—had driven off the freeway and onto the shoulder, where it stopped. The person who was driving the flatbed intended to look over the load he was hauling, according to authorities.

A semi-truck, which was carrying an excavator, went by the flatbed truck, and struck a back tire of the flatbed. The semi truck went out of the driver’s control, traveled down the slope of the embankment, struck a tree, and overturned.

The semi truck then erupted in flames. Good Samaritans stopped to help the driver and extinguish the fire.

According to Mark Latulippe, who is an officer with the California Highway Patrol, the driver of the semi truck suffered injuries that were described as minor. The current condition of the semi truck driver is not known. His name, age, and city of residence have not been reported.

Investigators are continuing their work to gather information and details to understand the circumstances of the incident.
