Dual semi crash on I-5 shuts down traffic in California

Interstate 5 in Redding, California was backed up for hours Monday afternoon following not one, but two semi truck crashes, which happened feet away from one another. The first semi accident occurred when that driver was traveling south when due to the slick road conditions, slid as they slowed down, and swerved across traffic while hitting the center divider. As a result, the truckload of rolls of sheet metal was spilled all over the road.

The second semi accident occurred when another truck was heading north and hit the sheet metal, jackknifed, and ended up in the southbound land after hitting a tree and landing in an embankment. Luckily neither of the semi drivers was seriously injured, and no other vehicles were involved. Currently, the heavy rainfall in the area is being blamed for the crashes. Likewise, since October, these accidents have attributed to five other semi crashes in the area on that particular stretch of I-5.
