Sacto 9-1-1

Traffic slow this morning near Newcastle on I-80

Traffic is slow on eastbound Interstate 80 near Newcastle after a pick-up truck towing a trailer crashed, spilling debris.

The pickup was traveling eastbound between Penryn and Newcastle at the Gilardi Road overcrossing about 4 a.m. when the driver lost control and hit a guardrail and bridge abutment.

The two slower lanes of the interstate were initially blocked. The slow lane is still blocked and may stay that way for most of the day to repair guardrail damage, according to a California Highway Patrol traffic website.

The crash damaged about 100 feet of guardrail. The driver was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.
