10/31/2017 - Tractor Trailer Accident Destroys Multiple Fences Within the Leavitt Lake Subdivision - Click here to print this information

On Thursday October 26th at approximately 11:05 a.m., 44-year-old Manuel Gallegos from Salinas, CA was driving a 2013 Peterbilt Semi-Truck/Trailer combination northbound on HWY 395, just north of Buffam Lane.

As he traveled northbound, Gallegos diverted his attention away from the roadway and to his radio, allowing the vehicle combination to drift to the right.

The vehicle then crossed the shoulder where its right, front tire struck the guardrail.

The impact caused the right, front tire to blow-out and travel along the guardrail until it ended.

The vehicle then traversed the adjacent ditch before traveling through three backyards in the Leavitt Lake subdivision.

Luckily, no injuries were sustained during the collision.
