West-bound Witness: The CHP report indicates it began as a collision with a honda and the truck. Then the incident was closed, then re-opened when other vehicles collided, it snow-balled into the semi- ending up over the side of the mountain. I'm not good at reading chp incident reports...so some of that may be inaccurate.
