A five-vehicle crash on westbound Interstate 80 caused a large traffic jam early Tuesday morning near Citrus Heights.
At about 6:35 a.m. Tuesday, a woman driving a Honda in the left lane of I-80 near the Greenback Lane exit suddenly veered to the right and struck a vehicle. The Honda overturned, eventually coming to rest in the center divider, California Highway Patrol Officer Amy Walker said.
The driver of the Honda was taken to an area hospital as a precaution, Walker said. Although three other cars were involved in the crash, no one suffered life-threatening injuries.
The crash initially blocked the two left lanes, Caltrans tweeted.
As of 7:30 a.m., all lanes had been cleared, Walker said, but the collision stalled westbound traffic in the surrounding area for miles along I-80.
