Jackknifed truck blocks Main Street
Susanville Police Sergeant Darryl Bermender said he was checking the road conditions near the corner of Pine and Cottage streets because the police department had received calls regarding big rigs coming down the hill without chains during Thursday afternoon’s snowstorm.
Bermender said he saw the out-of-control truck come around a corner, strike a tree and jackknife. No cargo spilled from the big rig, but some engine fluids spilled on the roadway and had to be cleaned up.
There were no injuries, but the wreckage closed Highway 36 for about 2-1/2 hours. The driver was cited for driving at an unsafe speed and released.
Bermender said the California Highway Patrol stopped big rigs at the truck scale above Susanville until the roadway was cleared.
