“Diesel fuel spilled across all the lanes and caught fire, completely burning the drive unit of the truck,” she said. The truck’s load of cargo did not burn and was removed by Caltrans crews later in the morning. Miller was able to climb from the rig and was treated for minor injuries at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. The second incident occurred at 7:10 a.m. on The Old Road and Silver Aspen Way. Hahn said Joseph Baker III, 26, of Castaic, was straddling lanes through stopped traffic when he lost control of his motorcycle. “His motorcycle went right and the rider went left, under the trailer, with his head facing southbound between two axles,” Hahn said. “The truck began to move and the wheel started rolling up his body when the driver saw people screaming and stopped.” CASTAIC – A tractor-trailer loaded with Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers overturned and burst into flames early Thursday, closing the southbound Interstate 5 Freeway for three hours and backing up traffic for miles. Less than a mile away, a motorcyclist weaving through stopped traffic on The Old Road lost control and was thrown under the wheels of a big-rig, resulting in serious injuries that sent him to the hospital. The first incident occurred at 5:08 a.m. near the truck scales just north of Magic Mountain Parkway. CHP Officer Wendy Hahn said Darwin Miller, 39, of Three Forks, Mont., experienced “a minor medical problem” that caused him to veer from the right shoulder of the road across all lanes. The truck crashed into the center divider and overturned. Driver Andre Simon, 43, of Pueblo, Colo., backed the trailer up, freeing Baker, who was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital with a fractured pelvis.
