Written by Dave Pehling and KPIX staff

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. (KION-TV)- A big-rig that overturned and went off the road on Highway 152. in Santa Cruz County Wednesday morning has shut down the highway, according to the CHP Santa Cruz.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident on CA-152 at Casserly Rd. just west of the county line caused a minor injury to the big-rig driver after the vehicle lost control and rolled.

The crash happened near the census-designated area of Interlaken just northeast of Watsonville. 

The operation to get the truck back on the road and clear the area shut down the highway completely.

Photos shared by the CHP Santa Cruz showed the truck overturned with only the cab remaining on the two-lane road.

A subsequent post on Twitter over three hours later showed that the cab and trailer had been placed upright, but the load that the truck was hauling and the trailer's siding were still still scattered down the hillside where the the vehicle overturned.

The road is scheduled to reopen in the next five hours.
