Three Caltrans workers were injured Tuesday when their vehicle was struck by a pickup truck on the side of westbound Interstate Highway 80 just east of Manuel Campos Parkway in Solano County, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
Five workers were cleaning the right shoulder around 11:30 a.m. when the truck struck their van and trailer, causing the van to roll over, CHP Officer David Harvey said.
One worker suffered major injuries, two suffered minor injuries and two workers were not injured, Harvey said. The truck driver suffered minor injuries. All of the injured people were taken to a hospital, Harvey said.
A CHP report said distracted driving is suspected in the collision.
The collision happened in the same area of Highway 80 where a CHP motorcycle officer and a Vallejo man in a Saturn were killed when they were struck by a truck on the right shoulder of the highway on Aug. 10.
This is the scene on I-80 in Fairfield where the CHP says two CalTrans workers were hit. Working on getting more details. This took place near the very spot a CHP Officer & another driver were struck & killed just over a week ago. pic.twitter.com/ZbPBrGHpTb— Jodi Hernandez (@JodiHernandezTV) August 21, 2018
