At about 2 p.m., a semi and a white SUV collided on Hwy 101. The semi veered off the roadway and dove into the ditch leaving its trailer across the southbound lane.

According to the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page, the semi truck was fully loaded with pressure-treated wood. A heavy duty tow truck is needed to assist in removal.

No one was badly injured, the CHP reports.

While traffic is moving slowly through the area, vehicles are getting around the truck.
