Tomato Truck Overturns in Multi-Vehicle Crash on the I-80 Freeway
VACAVILLE, Calif. (August 29, 2022) – A 7-vehicle Vacaville crash involving an overturned tomato truck happened on the Interstate 80 Freeway Monday morning near the Davis Street on ramp.
The multi-vehicle crash happened just after 5 a.m. on August 29th, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Tomatoes fell into the roadway after the eastbound semi-truck jackknifed and crashed into the center divider between the eastbound and westbound lanes. The truck overturned onto its side and spilled tomatoes onto the roadway, leading to several other vehicles crashing. It also caused the closure of multiple lanes and severe traffic.
Some of the other vehicles involved on both sides of the freeway were a Ford Ranger pickup truck, a black Ford Escape with major rear-end damage, and a blue Kia Forte with major front-end damage, a silver Kia Rio and a silver Chevrolet Cruze.
Meanwhile, a woman became trapped in her vehicle underneath one of the other involved motorists.
The Vacaville Fire Department responded to help those hurt in the crash. They transported three people including one with major injuries to a hospital, Action News Now reported.
The cause of the crash and liability remain under investigation.
