Several lanes of westbound Highway 50 were blocked for about an hour Saturday evening just east of Stockton Boulevard due to a multi-vehicle crash involving injuries, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The collision happened just before 6 p.m. and involved at least five cars, according to CHP’s incident logs. Caltrans issued a “SigAlert” for the crash at 6:19 p.m., and patrolmen were soon seen on Caltrans cameras directing cars on the left shoulder and the No. 1 lane to get past the scene.

By 7 p.m., however, all lanes were reopened, Caltrans cameras showed.
