An overturned big rig has partially blocked the route from Quincy down the Feather River Canyon. Initially both lanes were blocked but as of 3:30 Cal Trans reports that one lane is open with controlled traffic.  The crash reportedly spilled a load of lumber onto the road, and radio traffic indicated about two gallons of diesel fuel has spilled out so far. The crash site is between the Greenville Wye and Spanish Creek Bridge; travel from Greenville down the Canyon towards Oroville will likely be unaffected. Photo submitted
