I-5 Open After Big Rig Accident Near Pit River Bridge

A big rig tipped over and blocked Southbound Interstate Five at Lake Shasta Thursday afternoon. At 3:21PM the tractor trailer was blocking both lanes just north of the Pit River Bridge near Turntable Bay. Drivers were squeezing through in the center divide a short time later, but one lane remained blocked until after 9 O’clock Thursday night. The bottleneck caused severe delays for southbound traffic.
