Truck tips over while trying to navigate tight corner in California

A truck that was too long to navigate California’s Highway 175 tipped and fell over an embankment on October 11, the California Department of Transportation District 1 reported.

Caltrans District 1 posted the video with a warning that the road was unsafe for vehicles over 39 feet in length. They said the truck tried to pass through a one-lane section of highway where a retaining wall was being built.

They said that long vehicles sometimes get stuck trying to drive through, “but others end up going over the embankment.”

Caltrans said that the driver was not injured.
