The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 37 year old Ceres man, was driving south on the freeway, when he drifted into the center median as the rig was south of Road 12. The semi collided into a parked water truck, that was unoccupied. The impact of the collision then pushed the water tanker, into another parked vehicle, this time a dump truck.

The crash caused the semi truck's left-side fuel tank to rupture and spill oil onto the highway.
The Ceres man died at the scene of the accident.
