A crash involving four to five vehicles has slowed northbound traffic along the Safety Corridor according to a California Highway Patrol incident report. 

Paramedics were dispatched to the crash, which occurred around 5:10 p.m. near the Indianola Cutoff. However, it’s unclear at this time if any serious injuries were sustained during the crash.

Northbound traffic was completely stopped for roughly 30 minutes in the area, but traffic is now reportedly being directed along the shoulder of the highway at a slow pace.

We will update when we know more.
