A head-on collision triggered by a wrong way driver closed the No. 2 lane on southbound Interstate 5 at County Road 22 south of Woodland for a few hours Saturday, according to California Highway Patrol logs.

An off-duty CHP officer reported seeing a black Mercedes sedan drive the wrong way up the County Road 22 offramp at about 1 p.m., colliding head on with a semitruck, according to CHP logs. Minor injuries were reported.

A large amount of oil was left on the roadway, requiring a shutdown for cleanup. The offramp to County Road 22 was also closed. All lanes were reopened around 3:20 p.m.
