November 28, 2011- A big rig rolled on Highway 99, Monday morning taking out 92 feet of sound wall, that separated the freeway from Sisk Road, in Modesto. The accident occurred at about 2:15 AM.
Juan Alvarado, of Patterson, was driving a semi truck with tanks containing a liquid cheese byproduct. He was traveling north on Highway 99, just south of Earl Street. Alvarado made a lane change from the center lane to the slow lane, and lost control of his rig.
The big rig rolled over and crashed through the sound wall, sending splintered wood across Sisk Road, which parallels the freeway.
Sisk Road was shut down between Whitcomb Way and Brenner Way to clean up the debris and remove the truck.
Alvarado was not injured in the crash.
