A multivehicle crash Thursday morning blocked lanes for more than an hour on southbound Interstate 5 at Arena Boulevard.

Four vehicles, including a large white truck, were involved in the 10:56 a.m. crash, according to the California Highway Patrol. One person was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center for treatment of injuries., the CHP said.

All lanes reopened at 12:10 p.m., the CHP reported.

To demonstrate hydroplane conditions and how to recover, CHP Officer Dan Wright takes The Sacramento Bee for a spin on the academy's hazardous-conditions track in West Sacramento. Cut the risk of hydroplaning by reducing speeds.
