Large accident reported on Highway 99 near Turlock

One man was treated for minor injuries Thursday, after a four-vehicle collision on southbound Highway 99 near the Golden State Boulevard exit in Turlock.

CHP Officer Luis Lara said the collision was reported around 7:30 a.m. after a beverage delivery truck collided with a pick-up truck pulling a trailer, resulting in a jack-knife that blocked two lanes.

A BMW and a Toyota pick-up truck then clipped the trailer, with the BMW crashing into the center median, while the truck pulled over.

The driver of the pick-up with the trailer sustained minor injuries, but no one else was hurt, Lara said. The collision slowed traffic, although all of the lanes were re-opened around 8:30 a.m., according to the CHP.
