Big rig jackknifed on Cuesta Grade, causing delays on southbound Hwy. 101 Friday morning

Commuters heading south on Highway 101 over the Cuesta Grade faced delays for the second time in a week, after a big rig jacknifed Friday morning.

The accident happened at 7:04 a.m. just north of the Cuesta Summit, according to the CHP, and blocked the middle and right lanes.

The roadway was reportedly cleared at 8:07 a.m., but traffic was still slow going on Highway 101 in the Santa Margarita area.

On Monday, some commuters spent up to three hours in traffic after a semi-truck caught on fire near Tassajara Creek Road.
