7-24-12 Traffic on I5

Crazy Back-up on I5 Tuesday Evening

Traffic went from 4 lanes to 1 while we inched along for over an hour and a half Tuesday evening. When we finally arrived to the cause of the slowing, we saw a travel trailer on its side and an SUV teetering on the cement barrier over the side. Lots of skidmarks...no idea how it all went down or if there had been any other vehicles involved. However, the freeways are notorious for inexperienced drivers (or just plain stupid) who disobey the 55 mph speed limit for vehicles pulling trailers! Just saying.
