Overturned truck closes Highway 1 a mile north of Ragged Point for hours

I saw this truck on the side of the road south of San Simeon Pier on my way home, and stopped and spoke to the drivers. No one was injured and the truck was also undamanged. It was a lucky break. I finally got the video to upload, so here you go!
Okay, I figured out my dash cam, how to retrieve and download. I haven’t been able to upload from McDonalds, so will try when I get home.

UPDATE – SAW CHP HEADED NORTH CODE 3 AT 10:45, south of Piedra Blancas. With all the cars and RVS and trucks  headed north who won’t be able to turn around, this has got to be a nightmare by now – a real cluster. I feel a nice leisurely lunch coming on. BTW, I have a new dash. Cam. If I can figure it out, I should have video eventually.

  3. he is lucky to be alive… see straight up on one side, often means it’s pretty much straight down on the ocean side.

  5. I think these vehicles should be prohibited on Hwy 1; they are too big, and the hazards are too great.
