Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate State Route 175 between Hopland and Lake County is blocked after a semi-truck collided with a pick-up truck head-on.
The collision was originally reported at 1:42 p.m. when the big rig collided with a silver Toyota pickup.
The semi is reportedly blocking both lanes of SR 175 and three parties are injured, two with reportedly minor injuries.
Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.
What in the world is a semi truck doing on 175!? Going around on 101/20 takes only 20 minutes longer.
I guess there’s too many diversity hires and nobody knows how to read the signs that say no trucks Beyond this point
Your “guess” is an absurd non-deductive presumption.
The sign doesn’t say “No Trucks”.
It says no vehicles or combinations over 39′.
Some signs may be new but the rule has been the same since 1998.
Shorter semis (such as logging trucks etc) have no problem with SR175 as long as the driver is qualified.
Sounds like a racist to me. I’ve been on that road and many a White male trucker screwing up as well as on St Helena. Stupidity is not racially biased.
and my reply was directed at “theyknow” who doesn’t
