The driver of a big rig was killed Tuesday morning when his truck overturned on Interstate 5 in Siskiyou County.
The crash happened around 9 a.m. near Flume Creek Road, about 45 miles north of Redding.
The big-rig, carrying several 7,500 lb rolls of paper, overturned in the south bound lanes.
Witnesses reported the big rig was going too fast.
South Bound Interstate 5 was closed for several hours.
Rescue crews cut the trailer in half to get to the driver, but he had already died by the time they reached him.
The man's identity has not been released.
We do know he was from Washington State, and the trucking company is based out of the Yuba-Sutter area.
