UPDATE: Southbound Interstate 5 lanes reopened

The damage on a Ford Fusion involved in a crash with a big rig is seen as it is towed away from southbound Interstate 5 at Lyons Avenue on Monday.


Two southbound lanes of Interstate 5 shutdown due to a collision involving a car and two big rigs have been reopened, a California Highway Patrol officer said at 2:15 p.m.

The lanes were shutdown  shortly before noon following a non-injury traffic collision, she said.

About 11:45 a.m., traffic in all southbound lanes of the freeway was stopped when a collision occurred involving a car and two big trucks, the spokeswoman said.

Within five minutes, traffic was moving in the carpool lane and the one adjacent to it while emergency crews dealt with the three vehicles in the other two lanes.

The two curb lanes remained shutdown while tow trucks worked to remove the damaged vehicles, CHP said.

A CHP officer said the vehicles were removed by about 12:45 p.m. but the lanes were expected to remain closed until 1:45 p.m. while debris was removed.

No one was reported hurt in the collision.
