TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif.- CHP has closed one southbound lane and one northbound lane of I-5 this morning to recover a big rig that crashed into the median.

This happened north of Sunset Hills Road, just south of Cottonwood.

CHP said the driver drove into a ditch, causing the big rig to fall on its side, just after 3 a.m. Tuesday.

The driver wasn't injured.

CAL FIRE got involved because of an oil leak, which they contained at 15 gallons.

CHP said "fatigued driving" caused the crash.

The big rig was outside Sacramento, and the driver was headed back from Sacramento from Yreka, carrying auto parts, clothing and other non-perishables.
