Shoulder Gives-way, Truck Rolls Over

Sponsored by:

A non-injury big rig rollover accident on Tuolumne Rd. near Hess Ave and Industrial Way in Sonora caused some double-takes from passing motorists this morning.

CHP officer Brad Olson said the truck driver had over shot the entrance to Benites Distributing on the 14000 block of Tuolumne Road. When the driver made a turn onto the road’s shoulder to get back to the driveway, the mud and wet ground gave way under the weight of the fully loaded rig and the truck slowly toppled onto its side.

CHP said they would close the road to allow three large tow trucks to get the big rig and fully-load trailer back on it´s wheels.

The trailer is full of beer that was headed to the Sonora distributor.
