starting with christian live at the scene. >> let's go to christian captain and get the latest. what's it like out there? >> yeah, we were impacted by this as well. we left the station at 3:45 making our way down here. it took us about 45 minutes to make it from oakland to hayward. that gives you an idea of the traffic impact out here. anybody's commute is going to be impacted by this incident. the big rig blocking three of the south bound lanes and traffic being allowed to crawl through on the right lane. you can see there's a large tow truck trying to hall that vehicle off to the side. it's going to be a long time before they get this entirely cleared. this happened at around 3:00 this morning with reports that the overturned big rig blocked
all south bound lanes at a street in hayward. we checked with reports and they say initially it was on fire. crews were called to put out the flames. the driver of the big rig was injured. we understand he was taken to the hospital with relatively minor injuries. there were from what we understand, there was a vehicle abandoned on the side of the road. the big rig tried to avoid a collision with that vehicle and wound up hitting a large traffic sign so there are a lot of moving parts to all of this. if we come back to our live shot you can see we have a couple large tow trucks trying to hall the trailer off to the side trying to get the big rig off to the side. ryan, if we can come over here, we will show the other issue
going on. you might be able to see the sign is knocked down in this area as well. so obviously a lot of issues going on here. ryan, one more thing, apparently this is the owner of the company. he just arrived here on scene and i just heard him tell chp he just arrived on scene. let's see if we can talk with him. you're concerned about the driver of the truck? >> i don't know. i haven't seen it. i have to find out what's going on. >> you're concerned about the driver. he was taken to the hospital with minor injuries yes, it's the company i drive for. same guy. i'm trying to figure out. i don't know what's going on. they said minor injuries. >> that's what we understand. >> have you been in contact with him? >> no not at all. i was in the traffic. i have to call my boss to see if he's okay.
