WILLOWS, Calif. – CHP Officers said a big rig driver drove into oncoming traffic, then crashed into a ditch along Interstate 5 near Willows early Wednesday morning.

Officers told Action News Now around 7 a.m. the driver of a FedEx truck was headed north on the highway, drifted over, went through the bushes, got into the southbound lanes, and then overturned onto a field near County Road 39.

The crash left fuel leaking out onto the field.

“It appears right now that everything is over on the other side end of the field,” said Officer K. Baxter. “They are going to be cleaning the soil up there to manage that and get that out of there. but the irrigation ditch and everything else appears that it wasn't affected."

The crash did not impact traffic in the area. The driver of the big rig was not hurt.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
