76 E Open After Overturned Big Rig Blocked Traffic

State Route 76 East has been cleared and all lanes are open after a UPS big rig crash and rolled onto its side early Thursday in Oceanside.

Both eastbound lanes were closed as officials worked more than 7 hours this morning to clear the road and pull the overturned truck back upright.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. when the driver of the truck said he was exiting Interstate 5 and onto the 76 East to refuel. He started to slide, he said, before he lost control and the truck flipped onto its side.

There were no injuries and two California Highway Patrol officers pulled the driver out of the truck after the crash.

The truck was carrying UPS freight and packages. Davis Trucking Company took the packages out of the truck and put them into another truck to send off for shipping.
