I went to my daughter's yesterday to feed her cat while she is away. I took my normal route through the Santa Cruz Mountains. I had barely started up Bear Creek Road when the CHP was blocking the road, turning all traffic around. A bigrig had tried to go through, and was stuck on the first bad hairpin turn. He simply couldn't make the turn, tried to back up, lost traction, and got stuck. He got stuck at 9am, and was still there at 5pm. I don't know when he finally got out. He was apparently carrying 80,000 lbs of blacktop slurry to Boulder Creek, unfamiliar with the road, and following a phone app. He should never, ever, have taken that truck on that road. The road is signed at the bottom limiting truck size. Just out of sight on the left edge of the picture the turn tightens up and gets very steep for a short distance. The word is that his load shifted to the rear, taking traction off his drive wheels, which started spinning. He tried backing out of the turn and got stuck. Even if he were able to back out of the turn there is nowhere to turn that truck around. He'd have to back down Bear Creek Road, and there are very few drivers that good. The company had to send another truck from Fresno to pump him out.
