The ramp connection eastbound Interstate 80 to southbound Interstate 680 in Fairfield will remain closed for an estimated eight more hours this evening following a fatal big rig crash, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The big-rig overturned on the eastbound 80 to southbound 680 connector at 4:39 p.m., the CHP said.

The ramp is blocked by the overturned big rig and littered with debris and liquid spilled on to the roadway.

The Solano County coroner's office has been called to the scene, a CHP official said.
