I was driving to work today and I noticed on the north-bound 101 at Fairview there was an over turned truck, the CHP was already there.

Helicopter transport to the hospital? There is a hospital 1 and 7 miles away.

A picture can tell a thousand words but the same picture shot 6 times only tells a fraction of the story. You can move your vantage point to get a different view and create a different perspective of the story and add more interest. Just sayin'.

293: Helpful as you are, I know this area well and am quite sure these pics were taken from a car, probably while at the red light. Thankfully the photographer did not get out of his car to run around taking pictures, nor did s/he continue to shoot pictures from different angles while driving.

The Noozhawk article linked to this, the one referring to the transport was a vehicle over the side around Nojoqui grade... Vehicle 6-700' down in a ravine. I don't think this was the same accident....

Sorry, 60-70' down the side. Those darn errant zeros!

I often take this ramp to go home after work. I've seen multiple rollovers in this area because of inattentive drivers taking the long circular grade at inappropriate speeds. Rain and gravel only make it worse. It looks like the truck spun out during the turn, hit the soft dirt/mud, and rolled.
It's a common occurrence in that exact same spot.

It happened about 100 yards south of last week's rollover.

Thanks for the pictures, they told the story very well. Glad you weren't out getting in the way to shoot different angles.
