According to news sources, a big rig truck overturned Tuesday afternoon when the driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle that was carrying water while attempting to negotiate a turn on the roadway.
The accident took place as the driver of the big rig attempted to negotiate a turn on Round Mountain Road yet the load of water that the truck was carrying reportedly shifted in the process, causing the driver to lose control, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The incident caused the drive to be pinned down in the overturned tractor-trailer. He died after sustaining fatal injuries in the crash.
The CHP is currently investigating and said that speed may have been a factor in the accident.
