 On Monday, June 19, 2023, at approximately 9:26 pm, a Freightliner semi-tractor with an attached trailer was traveling westbound on I-80 at Lambs Canyon, milepost 136. The driver failed to negotiate the curve and lost control. The tractor/trailer rolled onto the driver’s side and slid down the roadway to the right. The vehicle came to rest on the driver’s side, blocking multiple right lanes, facing East. The 29-year-old male driver was partially ejected and sustained fatal injuries. All westbound lanes were closed at Lambs Canyon, with traffic being diverted back eastbound. Lane one reopened at 12:30 am. All others remained closed while the tow truck loaded the vehicle.
