A truck crash and diesel spill could slow traffic on Highway 299 west of Redding for several days.
The crash happened along Grass Valley Creek near Buckhorn Summit around 4 a.m. Thursday.
A big rig loaded with asphalt crashed, careening 150 feet off the road into a ravine. At least 100 gallons of diesel have spilled into the creek.
As of 8 a.m. the road was open, but lanes could be closing within a few hours. That closure could last for several days.
Fish and wildlife has been notified.
