CHP busy with rainy day crashes

By From page A3 | April 26, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A bevy of crashes on a rainy Friday kept the California Highway Patrol busy.

There were a “good share” of crashes, said Chris Parker, the public information office for the Fairfield CHP office. He cautioned drivers to slow down and take time to get to their destinations.

Two regional traffic alerts were issued.

A big rig tangled at 11:08 a.m. with two other vehicles on eastbound Interstate 80, just west of Nut Tree Parkway. A regional traffic alert was issued at 11:20 a.m. as the number four lane was blocked. It was cleared about 12:30 p.m.

There were minor injuries, Parker said.

The second regional traffic alert was issued at 1 p.m. for a jackknifed big rig on eastbound Interstate 80, just east of Interstate 780. The number two and three lanes were blocked.

Six people, all with minor injuries, were transported to hospitals, Parker said.

That traffic alert was lifted about 2:15 p.m.

One driver in Fairfield tangled with a pole at 10:23 a.m. and ended up facing the wrong way on the Waterman Boulevard onramp to Westbound 80.

A few minutes later, a solo crash near the eastbound Red Top Road offramp ended with a car facing the wrong way in the center divide.
