Scary scene near Floriston, California, on January 12, as a semi-trailer slid down a stretch of the I-80 with its brakes locked.

The California Highway Patrol (<span class="caps">CHP</span>) in Truckee released dashcam footage showing officers accompanying the trailer to safety.

According to a comment from the <span class="caps">CHP</span>, the trailer had earlier jackknifed and locked its brakes. Officers accompanied the vehicle to the next open shoulder, where the driver was able to make repairs. The road was reopened to traffic around 20 minutes later.
