Major car accident Highway 138 transport and a car head-on. The roads blocked traffic backed up for miles. It’s almost at the bridge just north of Quail Road

From Ms Lajoie:

The front of the transport is messed up there’s a car sideways in the northbound lane and the transport is about 100 ft off the road on the West Side. Thankfully it happened before the bridge

That would have been the view of the truck driver going south. Where the exes is right where the accident happened just says the 3920 Highway 148 just before the bridge

More from the scene:

It looks like the truck was heading south the car was heading north. The car is still in the northbound lane but sideways would two cars behind it. I don’t know if they were involved in the accident or not? And the transport is spacing Southwest about a hundred feet off the road with his front end showing that he was going south. And there’s damage to the front end of the truck


Fire trucks now on scene.
