A travel trailer rollover crash on southbound Highway 1 north of Watsonville slowed traffic for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The accident, near Larkin Valley Road, happened just before 12:30 p.m. when a red Chevy S10 pulling the travel trailer flipped in the middle lane, according to CHP officer Sarah Jackson.
The crash blocked two of the three southbound lanes. Emergency crews briefly closed the third temporarily and rerouted traffic down San Andreas Road to avoid the wreck, according to the CHP website. Later, the fast lane was reopened and traffic was allowed to crawl past the accident.
The 46-year-old man driving the pickup suffered minor injuries in the crash, Jackson reported.
Fire crews and a towing company were at the scene for much of the afternoon trying to remove the flipped travel trailer. Traffic backed up past State Park Drive, a few miles north. The road was cleared a little before 3 p.m, according to the CHP.
