A semi-truck accident right now at Highway 101 northbound at La Cumbre offramp. 

It looks like the trailer/bed came off the truck. Lots of police and emergency responders on the scene.

CHP clocked this at 7:12am, slightly north of the La Cumbre off ramp. The big-rig went through the guard rail and spilled wood debris all over the roadway. The number one lane of the offramp is closed.

Thanks for the photo's - Josh Blair! They say a "picture is worth a thousand words", I'm speechless...
Prayers to the "one patient", hoping for the best outcome.

Wow. "The semi truck hit the wall on the northbound highway exit, which has a sharp turn to the right, and “basically tore the front axle off, and had intrusion from one of the signs into the driver space,” McCoy said."
