Highway 99 Reopens After Big Rig Crash In Stockton

Yellow Line

STOCKTON, CA — Traffic flow on Highway 99 in Stockton returned to normal after a major disruption caused by a big rig crash earlier today. The accident, which occurred just south of Fremont Street around 9:30 a.m., resulted in the closure of all southbound lanes, creating significant traffic delays.

Details on what led to the crash remain unclear, but the incident involved a big rig toppling onto its side, effectively blocking the entire southbound side of State Route 99. There have been no immediate reports regarding any injuries from the crash.

Efforts to clear the roadway were successful, and by approximately 11 a.m., Caltrans announced that all lanes had been reopened. This swift response helped to mitigate the traffic impact and restore normalcy along this crucial highway stretch.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) Stockton was on the scene to manage traffic and investigate the cause of the crash. Motorists experienced delays during the closure, but the reopening has since eased the traffic congestion.

Authorities have not yet provided specific details about the cause of the accident or potential injuries. The investigation is ongoing, and updates are expected as more information becomes available.

This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of roadway safety, particularly in areas with heavy commercial traffic. Drivers are urged to remain vigilant and cautious, especially near large vehicles like big rigs.
