A major multiple-vehicle crash was reported in North Highlands on September 18, resulting in injuries. The accident occurred along westbound I-80 just west of the Winters Street off-ramp around 5:51 a.m. and reportedly involved seven vehicles. A gray vehicle was allegedly sideways in the number one lane and struck by another car, which set off a chain reaction involving others.
Major injuries were reported in the collision, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). All the westbound lanes were blocked by the collision, and numerous near misses occurred with oncoming traffic. An investigation is underway by the CHP to determine how the multiple-vehicle accident happened.
