Highway 92 was shut down Tuesday afternoon after a modular home being lugged by a truck tipped over and swung into oncoming traffic.

The truck was hauling the prefabricated home on a trailer and heading west over the curvy highway pass, according to California Highway Patrol officials. The accident occurred just east of Skyline Boulevard, when the truck was bending around one of the last curves before reaching the summit. The mobile home toppled and fell into the eastbound lane, striking an oncoming truck.

No was injured in the crash, CHP officials said. The accident caused the highway to be completely closed to traffic for about 40 minutes for a tow truck to haul out the trucks. The road was open around 3:45 p.m.

Welcome to the discussion.

    Accidents seem happen frequently while trailering these modular homes. I'd be interested in knowing what permits and rules are required for hauling oversize loads like this.
