HATCHET PASS — CHP is headed to Hatchet Pass, about seven miles southwest of Burney, after receiving reports of a tractor trailer combo that broke down in the westbound lane of 299E, according to a CHP incident log.

CHP was alerted to the situation just before 12:30 p.m., after a 911 caller reported a big-rig hauling hay had broken down and was blocking the westbound side of the winding, two-lane mountain roadway.

Some area residents have reported minor delays as vehicles slowly work their way past the disabled rig, but no accidents or injuries have been reported.

As of this report CHP was still headed to the scene and no further details have been released.

This is a developing story that will be updated as new information is available.
