A pickup rests on its side on Highway 20 near Pine Needle Lane east of Nevada City after colliding with a big rig Tuesday afternoon. The pickup was westbound and pulling a trailer hauling a Bobcat tractor when it stopped to turn left, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jerry Curro. The trailer was rear-ended by a big rig whose brakes overheated and malfunctioned, he said. No injuries were reported, but traffic was stopped in both directions for 26 minutes.
