On September 6th at approximately 4:15 p.m. Luis Francisco Camacho Era was driving his 2001 Freightliner big rig, hauling a flatbed trailer full of lumber, heading westbound on SR-70. He was just west of Old Mill drive when his ruck drifted onto the right shoulder. The front of the truck then hit a ditch and continued along the rock embankment on the north side of the road. Era related he lost control of the truck at this point and his truck went back across both the westbound and eastbound lanes. The truck collided with the guard rail on the south road edge and overturned onto its right side. Following the collision Era exited his truck and awaited emergency services on the shoulder. Era sustained no injuries as a result of this collision and was wearing his seatbelt at the time.
On September 12th at 11:25 a.m. Jacob T Taulbee, 27 of Vacaville and his passenger Elizabeth A. Arcamone, 24 of Vaaville were traveling southbound on SR-89 south of Calpine Summit in a 2018 Honda Accord at a stated speed of 50-55 mph when a deer entered the roadway from the west side of SR-89. The deer entered directly into the path of the Honda and Taulbee was unable to avoid a collision as the front of the Honda collided with the deer.

On September 19th at approximately 8:15 a.m. Tipton W. Moser, 61, of Reno was driving his Peterbilt fuel tanker truck and tank trailer westbound on SR-70 in the curve prior to the Spanish Creek Bridge in excess of 40 mph. The truck and trailer were both fully loaded with gasoline and diesel fuel. Due to the speed of Moser’s vehicle, he lost control as he exited a curve, causing the rear trailer to tip over subsequently pulling over the truck tanker. The truck and trailer slid sideways across both lanes of the highway and collided into the metal guardrail at the end of the Spanish Creek Bridge and dirt embankment. This impact caused the vehicle to roll over and rupture both fuel tanks. As a result of the hazardous materials spill the entire highway was closed for an extended period of time.
