Overturned Tractor Trailer Spills Logs on Eastbound I-80 in Pinole, Closing Lanes

PINOLE (CBS SF) -- CHP issued a severe traffic alert late Friday morning after an injury accident involving a tractor trailer spilled large logs onto lanes of eastbound I-80 in Pinole.

The Twitter account first posted about the crash west of Fitzgerald Drive shortly before 10 a.m.

It initially blocked the right and center lanes of traffic, but by about a half an hour later, just the right lane was blocked, according to authorities.

However, at about 10:50 a.m., CHP tweeted that lanes 3,4 and 5 were temporarily being closed as crews worked to clear out the large logs being transported by the truck.

The Richmond Parkway on-ramp to eastbound I-80 was also closed by the crash.

As of 3 p.m., CHP said the right lane remained closed.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and to use alternate routes to avoid the area. There is no estimated time to reopen the roadway.
