Major injuries in I-80 wreck, CHP says

Traffic on Interstate 80, west of Drum Forebay Road, was significantly slowed Thursday afternoon after a pickup went off the road and into some trees, the California Highway Patrol said.

The westbound Ford pickup with three people in it traveled off the highway’s right shoulder around 1:05 p.m. It then hit some trees at an unknown speed. Authorities reported major injuries. No other vehicles were involved, Officer Chris Nave said.

“We’re still trying to extricate people from the vehicle,” Nave said around 2 p.m.

The highway patrol advised people on its Facebook page to use caution in the area.
