Horrifying Plunge From Oakland Freeway - Fox Reno A United Parcel Service big rig hurled 30 feet off an Oakland freeway overpass early Thursday, slamming onto the roadway below, injuring the driver and leaving stunned witnesses nearly speechless. The 51-year-old driver of the 2003 Toyota was speeding south on Highway 880 just north of Oak Street when he made an unsafe lane change, the CHP reported. The Toyota swerved into the No. 3 lane and struck a UPS truck driven by a 47-year-old man. The big rig driver then lost control of his vehicle, crashing into the concrete guardrail, ripping away large chunks of cement. The big rig hurled over the overpass, flying some 50 feet in the air before landing on the roadway 30 feet below.
