11:05 am
was coming from. >> that's the other mystery. we can't determine where this mail truck actually originated from because it was a contract service. we thought originally it was coming out of sacramento but then sacramento has reported to us that all their drivers are accounted for. >> reporter: but since that conversation, he tells me this truck was actually coming from sacramento and that the packages they were to cover will now go to the san josefa silt where it will be redirected to the right destination. chpd has not identified the victim at this time. they had one truck take away all these packages and now we're being told this is the truck here that's going to take away these latest packages. we still don't have an eta on when this lane right next to me is going to reopen. we're live in danville, pete suranos, nbc 7 news. >> this is a backup that's still affecting traffic even this many hours later. >> even in an ultra light volume
