I-80 Reopens In Placer County After Big Rig Crash, Diesel Fuel Leakage Shuts Down WB Lanes

WHITMORE (CBS13) — A jackknifed big rig and diesel fuel leak briefly shut down westbound Interstate 80 in Placer County.

Caltrans said the crash happened late Friday afternoon near Whitmore Road and blocked all lanes.

As of 5:50, the lanes were back open with traffic flowing.

The roadways were still wet and covered with some snow from this week's major winter-like storm that rolled through Northern California.
