SAN DIEGO — A tractor-trailer took out several feet of guardrail and overturned along Highway 78 early Friday, forcing a major road closure in the San Pasqual Valley area just in time for the morning commute.
The crash between the San Pasqual Academy and Oroso Guejito Road was reported at 4:20 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
Highway 78 from the San Pasqual Academy to Oroso Guejito Road — a major commuter corridor out of Ramona — was closed for cleanup, the CHP reported. As of 7 a.m., crews had uprighted the vehicle but its load and other debris remained on the roadway.
Authorities shut down a stretch of the roadway just west of Guejito Truck Trail to allow for cleanup. The route was fully reopened as of 12:40 p.m., CHP public affairs Officer Robert Catano said.
