Overturned Propane Truck Near Mariposa

Sponsored by:

An overturned propane truck has forced the shut down of Highway 49 and the Old Highway, effectively blocking access to the mountain town of Mariposa.

Two tow trucks are on the scene trying to get the truck off its side.

The California Highway Patrol warns that if the truck rolls over again once it´s upright, it may crush two stationary tanks. The CHP says the roads were expected to remain closed until about 8 a.m.
