Sheriff's, fire and city crews are cleaning up after a big rig crashed on Bouquet Canyon Road, ending up on the sidewalk. The accident knocked out a section of wall.
The #2 lane of northbound Bouquet Canyon Road was completely blocked by debris and traffic was restricted to one lane. The cab of the truck was placed in the street, while the tractor's frame and cargo compartment were wedged between a power pole and the remains of a residential wall.
The accident happened during early morning rush hour and continued to impact mid-morning travel.
KHTS spoke with neighborhood resident Michelle McNeill, who said she was awakened by the accident, and rushed to help. Shining light on the truck for authorities, her husband helped the truck driver out of the wrecked vehicle, and she said the smell of leaking gas was apparent.
Also, McNeill said the driver told her that he fell asleep at the wheel and that may be the cause of the accident.
No major injuries were immediately reported, however McNeill told KHTS that the driver did suffer an arm injury.
