HOPLAND GRADE – Cleanup following a Tuesday big rig rollover continued through much of the day on Wednesday.


The truck and trailer, fully loaded with lumber, had tipped over mid-afternoon Tuesday while being escorted down the Lake County side by California Highway Patrol. CHP had cited the driver for being on the narrow highway, which large trucks are prohibited from traveling.


The driver and a juvenile riding in the truck escaped without serious injury, but the roadway had been closed for several hours Tuesday afternoon and evening while the roadway was cleared.


However, the overturned truck with its load of lumber hadn't yet been removed on Tuesday. That arduous task continued Wednesday, as the truck and lumber were pulled up from their resting place over the embankment by Willits Towing.


One lane of traffic was closed as work continued through the course of the day.


Shortly before 2 p.m. the CHP reported that another big rig was attempting to make its way up the grade from the Lakeport side.
