The California Highway Patrol reports that traffic is backed up past Spyglass Drive along southbound Highway 101 after what the agency describes as a major-injury crash near Five Cities Drive backed up traffic almost to Spyglass Drive.
A minivan reportedly rolled over before 5 p.m., ending up on its side in the freeway’s slow lane.
Traffic was still backed up as of 6:15 p.m., according to views from Caltrans cameras, though the CHP issued a conflicting report that all lanes are open.
No information is available on the circumstances of the crash or the condition of the people involved.
