A portion of Highway 41 just south of Yosemite was closed Monday. A tractor trailer carrying powdered sulfur lost control and slammed into a guard rail. Highway Patrol says the driver was under the influence.
"It's disappointing and irritating. We came all the way from London to see the Sequoias and we can't see them," said a park visitor.
Hazmat crews worked in the blistering sun dressed head to toe in safety gear. CHP tells us a tractor trailer lost control and slammed into a guard rail.
"He was under the influence of something," said CHP officer Doug Corbett.
The sulfur did start a fire. It raged one acre up a hillside. It's a lot quieter in Fishcamp when there's no traffic. A little odd for Pamela Salisbury who is a business owner and a home owner here.
