Traffic Update....Hwy 49 Blocked By Overturned Big Rig North Of Mokelumne HIll. Possible Fatality

Mokelumne Hill, CA...CHP is reporting an overturned big rig collision on Hwy 49 near Electra between Jackson & Mokelumne Hill. It is reported that an asphalt truck has overturned and is blocking both lanes. Early reports are that the driver may be underneath the wreckage. Let's hope this proves incorrect and this one doesn't end with another fatality on our local roadways...

Lots of accidents reported, and I sure hope this isn't a fatality. Not sure if this is the one of the two year old who's arm was out the passenger window when the truck flipped and was pinned under the truck? Prayers to the family and friends that everyone is ok.

    Sorry, different accident, that was Wednesday night where the toddler was pinned and injured on Highway 49 in the Mokelumne Hill area.
    Prayers to the family and friends of the driver in this accident.

Forget the Bullet Train and use the money to build bridges at Moke River, Jackass Hill, etc. Use our money to benefit the most people, not an elite few.
