Highway 99 Big-Rig Crash Leaves Driver Seriously Hurt

CHICO, CA (August 30, 2021) Officials reopened the southbound lanes of Highway 99 after a big-rig crash that resulted in one injured.

The incident occurred around 2:30 A.M. on Thursday at the southbound 99 near East avenue.

Upon further investigation, authorities claimed that the pick-up truck ran into engine problems and was stopped along the Highway.
