Investigators said that as the semi, owned by Lockheed-based High Mountain Transportation, negotiated the left turn, the load shifted causing the semi truck and trailer to overturn onto its right side. All travel lanes were blocked for approximately 45 minutes.

The driver was 61 year old Charles Head of Reno.
