Recently, a truck flipped over on the southbound side Highway 29 just past Highway 12 in unincorporated Napa County California near American Canyon. The truck spilled the glass bottles it was hauling out onto the highway, according to reports by the California Highway Patrol. It was unclear whether the driver was injured, but the truck was the only vehicle involved in the accident. California Highway Patrol officers speculated that the wreck might have been caused by the rainy weather. Highway 29 was closed to traffic while the roadway was cleared, though drivers were diverted to a left-hand turn lane to circumvent the results of the accident. A sweeper truck cleared the bottles off of the road. The bottles were empty and officers speculated that the truck was hauling them to a recycling center at the time of the accident. According to the highway patrol report, the driver complained of minor pain in his leg, but the severity of the injury was undetermined. It’s unclear whether the driver sought treatment for his injuries.
