January 6, 2012- A big rig accident occurred on the Highway 99 off-ramp, in Tulare, on Friday, just before 2 PM.
The semi truck, carrying 39 tons of oranges, was traveling southbound on Highway 99. The truck tried to exit the highway to Paige Avenue. The driver took the turn at too high of a speed, and lost control, causing the semi to overturn.
The big rig came to rest on the drivers side, and the trailer took down a traffic sign and part of the fencing near the off-ramp.
The driver received minor injuries in the crash, and was taken to Tulare Regional Medical for treatment.
