The crash happened at around 4:40 a.m. on May 20th but traffic was still backed up as of 1:15 p.m.

According to KSBY 6 News, the truck was driving along northbound Highway 101 in Santa Maria when officers say the driver made an ‘unsafe turning movement,’ struck a guardrail, and overturned. The truck was hauling produce. Crews are working to salvage as much food as they can and load it onto another truck.
