UPDATE, 2:55 p.m.:

KHUM DJ Bayley Brown reports from the scene that crash involved three vehicles, a big rig, a tractor, and an SUV.

CHP Officer J Keller told Brown on scene that the cause of the crash is still being investigated and that DUI does not appear to be a factor.

The roadway has been cleared and that traffic is moving slowly. 

###

UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Dispatch seems to indicate that everything has been moved over to the shoulder and lanes are open. It’ll probably still be slow going through the crash area, though.

###

Traffic on southbound Highway 101 is being detoured onto side streets at the moment, after a two-vehicle crash involving a big rig closed both lanes of the road.
