Stockton Roads Closed

A major accident in the Stockton area on Sunday afternoon left chaos in its wake as a big rig carrying a staggering eight thousand gallons of fuel burst into flames following a collision, as reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The incident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. and led to the closure of several critical roads, including Highway 4 and Navy Drive, the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 to westbound Highway 4, the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 to westbound Highway 4, and the Lincoln Street on-ramp to westbound Highway 4. According to CHP, the crash transpired when the big rig attempted a left turn from eastbound Navy Road to eastbound Highway 4, only to collide with another vehicle. The impact caused the fuel truck to overturn, spilling its contents before erupting into flames. Thankfully, both the driver of the fuel truck and the occupant of the other vehicle managed to escape unharmed. However, the spilled fuel cascaded down an embankment, ultimately seeping into a nearby pond, prompting urgent action from environmental authorities who are en route to contain and clean the affected area. In a bid to prevent further environmental damage, another fuel truck has been dispatched to the scene to extract the remaining fuel from the overturned vehicle before towing it away. Authorities estimated that the impacted roads would remain closed until around midnight, causing significant disruption to local traffic and commuter routines.
