Driver Suffers Major Injuries After Big Rig Overturns

A load of french fries became mashed potatoes when a big rig crashed in the Lakehead area Wednesday afternoon. A little after 2 O'clock the tractor trailer left southbound Interstate Five just north of the Lakehead Rest Area and crashed into some heavy brush. The refrigerated trailer split open and spilled much of its load of 79-Thousand pounds of french fries. One of the truck's fuel tanks also burst open, spilling more than 100 gallons of diesel. The driver sustained major injuries.
