Crews clean up remains of beer hauler destroyed by fire on Hwy. 99 near Powerline Rd.
SACRAMENTO - A truck carrying a load of Pyramid brand beer was destroyed in a fire that forced a lane closure and caused traffic delays on southbound Highway 99 Tuesday morning.
California Highway Patrol officers on scene said the big rig crashed near Powerline Rd. causing the trailer to separate before the rig burst into flames.
Officers could not confirm a cause of the crash, but speculated that brake or bearing failure may have been to blame.
One lane was closed due to cleanup efforts.
CHP did not provide an estimated time of reopening.
