A logging truck accident on State Route 253 slowed traffic this morning and requires a heavy-duty tow system to hoist from where it came to rest off the roadway.
The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicates the accident occurred around 6:27 a.m. A 55-gallon drum was requested to the scene to drain diesel from the semi.
The Caltrans Quickmap shows traffic is moving slower in the area of the accident as crews work to extricate the vehicle.
