Westbound traffic was backed up for nearly an hour on the Skyway following a rollover crash Tuesday morning.

The crash happened near Spanish Garden Drive, just east of Chico around 9:30 a.m.

California Highway Patrol officers say the truck hit an embankment and then rolled over, causing the driver to become trapped inside.

The driver has been taken to Enloe Medical Center with major injuries, nobody else was injured.

CHP officials say the accident may have been a result of distracted driving, but the investigation is ongoing.
