A Freightliner, driven by Sohan Lal, 62 years old, of Pittsburg, entered Highway 99 north from the offramp, while driving south.  Lal tried to turn the tractor-trailer around, once he realized he was going the wrong way on the freeway.

As the big rig attempted to make a u-turn, north of Avenue 8, a pickup truck hauling a horse trailer, with a horse inside, crashed into the semi.
