Oceanside CA— Approximately 3:30 this morning, December 18, 2014, a big rig traveling on the south-bound I-5 transition ramp to east-bound HWY 76 flipped on its side. The tractor-trailer was blocking the east-bound lanes of Highway 76 and a SIG-Alert was issued shortly after 5:00am.
As of 7:30am the I-5 south-bound to east-bound HWY 76 remained closed as crews continue to off-load the trailer and work to upright the big-rig.
Traffic is relatively unaffected for west-bound traffic and the turn lanes from Highway 76 to south-bound 5 are open.
CHP and Oceanside Police remain at the scene. There were no reports of serious injuries and the cause is under investigation.
