Adobe Road in Penngrove was closed Monday morning as crews removed a load of sand that spilled when a big rig crashed, CHP officials said.
The crash occurred at 8:40 a.m. near Davis Lane.
The double-trailer rig landed on its side in the northbound lane and partially blocked the south lane, according to the CHP.
The driver was taken to Petaluma Valley Hospital with minor injuries, CHP Officer Jon Sloat said. The identity and condition of the driver were unavailable.
The open-top rig dumped about 2,700 pounds of sand on the road.
Officers directed traffic away from Adobe Road while the Dixon-based company Chavez Trucking, arranged for another truck to remove the sand, Sloat said.
A small amount of fuel leaked onto the road, the CHP said.
The road was reopened around 12:30 p.m., a CHP official said.
