The solo-vehicle crash occurred southbound on Interstate 5 north of El Camino Real exit at about 3:40 a.m. The semi, which was carrying a sealed shipping container, rolled over and jackknifed blocking three right lanes. Road closures began at Avenida Presidio.
The health state of the driver is unknown.

A tow rig operator and a crew arrived shortly after to remove the semi. By 7:00 a.m. they managed to bring the big rig upright and moved it onto the right hand shoulder. A highway patrol man inspected the trailer and its tires to determine the integrity of the vehicle before it was towed away.

Authorities continue to investigate the accident to determine its cause. Other vehicles were not involved in the crash.
