A 58-year-old Livermore man suffered major injuries Thursday when his tractor-trailer hauling sodium hypochlorite overturned in Calaveras County.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at 8:22 a.m. on private property in the 600 block of Gold Oak Road. Larry Noble was making a right turn when part of his 2008 Peterbilt big rig went off the asphalt, dropping several inches onto a dirt shoulder.
The tractor and trailer overturned onto their right sides. The tank carrying the disinfectant was not punctured, but as a precaution, nearby Calaveras High School canceled afternoon sports practices and outside activities.
Noble was taken to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.
