A recent traffic accident involving a Big Rig truck that was overturned on Interstate 880 in Hayward, Ca caused a frightening situation for authorities. The incident occurred on April 18, around 3:30 p.m. in the height of traffic. The big rig was reportedly carrying a shipment of wine to a supplier in California when a five passenger car hit it. The collision between the vehicles caused the big rig to overturn spilling out thousands and thousands crates of wine and causing injury to the drivers of the vehicles. When the big rig overturned, it began to leak fuel. By the time authorities arrived on the scene, the big rig had leaked at least at least 5 gallons of diesel fuel. This incident caused a frightening situation among police and medical officials as they tried to provide aid to the drivers of the vehicle. Diesel fuel leaks can cause explosions, so the authorities were instructed to operate on this scene with extreme caution. The police closed all lanes of traffic on the highway where the big rig was overturned and leaking fuel, which resulted in a major traffic jam and general chaos as the traffic was rerouted. The authorities issued a statement to travelers to avoid the area until the next morning due to the fact that the crates had to be manually cleaned before traffic could resume.
