Carrier Crashes on I-15, Car Lands in Opposite Lanes

A tandem car carrier drove off Interstate 15 Sunday, leaving one trailer on the highway and a car blocking several lanes.

One car had to be towed off the southbound lanes of I-15 at Friars after the trailer carrying it flipped just after noon.

Witnesses reported that cars from the trailer landed across the freeway and were blocking lanes.

When the California Highway Patrol arrived, officers found at least one car came off the carrier and landed in the southbound lanes.

The cab of the truck and the first attached trailer were resting in a nearby embankment.

There were no reported injuries.

A winter storm had dropped a steady amount of precipitation on the highway but California Highway Patrol officers have not revealed if slick conditions caused the crash.
