Latrobe and Old Sacramento roads closed after big rig truck accident near Plymouth

According to a recent article from KCRA, one person was tragically killed on Saturday after a traffic accident occurred on Highway 16 in Amador County between a big rig truck and another vehicle.

As stated in the article, the driver of an unnamed vehicle was traveling on Highway 16 before crossing over into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane at about 10:45 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Officers from California Highway Patrol stated that the vehicle struck a big rig that was carrying hay near Latrobe and Old Sacramento.

When authorities arrived at the scene, they pronounced the driver of the vehicle dead at the scene.  His name was not immediately released pending the notification of his next-of-kin.

Furthermore, the driver of the big rig truck carrying hay in the car accident was not injured, and neither was anyone else, reportedly.

The deadly head-on collision caused Highway 16 to be closed for a few hours between Latrobe and Old Sacramento roads as highway crews cleaned up the debris and collision aftermath.

Currently, this big rig truck accident is still under investigation and further information will be released at a later time when authorities have determined what caused the driver to veer into the opposite lane.

Our prayers are with all subjects involved, as well as the family of the victim during such a difficult time.
