I heard it all involved a prolonged dispute with Teamster goon leaders trying to get overtime pay for the driver. The more they argued while holding up traffic on the interstate, the more overtime the driver was bound to get. Figures!

Not that this incomplete article mentions it but the truck was traveling from Lathrop, Ca (just north of Manteca) to San Jose------YET this article along with Pleasanton Patch said it was traveling northbound from Lathrop to San Jose. Last I check that should be southbound.
Pleasanton weekly and P-town patch-you should do a little more research before reporting.

Yes, hitting a concrete barrier will cause a big rig to jack-knife. No reason to hit the middle barrier other then this driver was asleep at the wheel. How many early morning big rig accidents does it take on the Sunol portion of I680 before the CHP starts cracking down on these dangerous drivers?
