Big rig accident blocks highway lanes in Orinda
The far left lane was blocked in both directions on Highway 24 in Orinda after a big rig driver heading westbound lost control of his truck’s trailer and crashed through the center divider just before 1:30 p.m. The trailer came to a stop on the center divider with each end of the truck blocking a lane of traffic.
The trailer has since been moved and is no longer blocking traffic heading eastbound. It is still affecting traffic in the westbound direction.
The weather conditions have been affecting traffic all day and are responsible for a number of accidents along the Highway 24 corridor.
