Video shows truck rolling down embankment

- Caltrans District 1 posted video of truck slowly rolling off a roadway and down an embankment on State Route 175. 

A long truck was trying to make its way through a one lane section of highway where a retaining wall was being built when it overturned. 

Cal Trans officials posted the video with the warning, "State Route 175 between Hopland and Lakeport is limited to vehicles not over 39 feet in total length!"

Cal Trans says a crew saw the long truck trying to make its way through the one-lane section of highway where a retaining wall is being built. 

According to Cal Trans, multiple signs are posted to warn drivers of the length restriction. 

"Sometimes drivers get stuck, but others go down the embankment," said Cal Trans. 

The driver was not injured. 
 
Cal Trans is sharing the video to help spread the word that long trucks are not allowed on that roadway.
