The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is asking truckers to slow down and obey chain law requirements after an unchained big rig went through a guardrail this week.

On Thursday, CHP’s Yreka Division took to Facebook to remind that chain requirements are put in place for a reason.

From CHP:

With slick road ways it’s important to slow down and obey chain restrictions. This crash happened last night when a truck drove through a snowy area without putting on chains and ended up going through a guard rail on US-97 at Dorris Hill. Fortunately the driver was not injured but a lot of time and resources were used to respond and handle the scene.
