I-5 Open After Big Rig Overturns In Cottonwood

Northbound Interstate 5 was closed at Cottonwood Monday night after a big rig tanker overturned. At 8 O’clock the semi tipped over just north of Bowman Road and blocked the whole northbound side, which was closed for a few hours with traffic diverted up Main Street through Cottonwood. About 70 gallons of diesel spilled but it was apparently all contained on the roadway.
