The accident, which apparently did not result in serious injuries, will requires a closure of the No. 2, 3, and 4 lanes for about an hour until a heavy tow truck can arrive to move the van, said CHP officer Denise Quesada.

A white Toyota sedan lost control and struck the plumbing van from behind, causing it to overturn, said CHP Officer Nichols, who was at the scene. The van landed on the driver’s side, facing oncoming southbound traffic.

The Toyota ended up in the iceplant off the right shoulder, and had to be pulled out by a tow truck.
