The box truck veered off the right shoulder, rolling down an embankment and striking two construction workers contracted by Caltrans, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

One of the construction workers tragically lost their life at the scene, while information on the second worker’s condition was not immediately available.

The crash left the box truck on its side on the embankment, creating a challenging scene for emergency responders and investigators.

Authorities are working to determine the cause of the crash and the factors that may have contributed to it. The incident prompted the closure of two lanes on the freeway for the investigation, causing traffic disruptions and delays in the area.
