VALLEJO (CBS SF) – A woman suffered moderate injuries Thursday morning when she lost control of a vehicle as she was entering eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Vallejo and was hit by a big-rig, California Highway Patrol officials said.
The collision was first reported at 8:34 a.m. at Highway 80 and Tennessee Street, CHP Officer James Evans said.
The collision blocked all eastbound lanes of the highway until about 10:30 a.m. and involved a third vehicle that hit the big-rig after it hit the woman’s vehicle.
The woman, who was the only person injured, had to be extricated and was taken to a hospital, CHP Officer Andrew Nelson said.
The big-rig was 40 feet long and its trailer was empty.
