SACRAMENTO, CA - A Ford F-350 pickup lost control as it transitioned from Interstate-5 South onto Interstate-80 East, lodging between a pair of trees.

The crash happened a few minutes before 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The California Highway Patrol said the truck was traveling too fast for the turn and skidded off the ramp and down a slope about 60 yards.

The work truck appeared to be totaled. However, the driver did not appear to be injured, but firefighters took him to UC Davis Medical Center as a precaution.

The CHP said the driver may have been under the influence of alcohol.

The transition ramp was expected to remain closed until about midnight as a pair of tow trucks pulled the F-350 up the embankment.
