I drive this road everyday and can't fathom how a big rig, traveling at speed, would begin to jackknife. This is terrifying to think about.

Where exactly did this take place? Was it over by the nursery on the east side of 680 where Calaveras Rd. pops out or actually on 84 east of 680 where it heads towards the nuclear plant?

There should be weight limits on that portion of 84 to prevent big rigs from traveling on it. The big rigs get to routed to 580.
