Crash Hwy 221

This was the scene at Hwy 221 and Anderson Road when a semi-truck crashed into a car, then overturned Friday morning, blocking the southbound lanes for hours.

A big rig that may have run a red light collided with a car shortly after 6:30 a.m. Friday on Highway 221 at Anderson Road, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The crash blocked southbound lanes while workers tried to off-load the big rig and clean up leaking fuel, the CHP said. The closure was expected to last until mid-day, Caltrans said.

Both drivers sustained minor injuries, the CHP said.

Caltrans was called to repair a damaged traffic light, according to the CHP's website.
