A two vehicle collision backed up traffic onto highway 20 after two vehicles collided on the Empire Street on-ramp to Northbound Hwys. 20/49 this morning. CHP Officer Greg Tassone says it happened about 7:15 a.m.
It was a Dodge Pickup truck and a Silver Honda Sedan that had collided. Airbags did deploy but luckily there were no major injuries. The problem was getting the accident cleared during the busy morning commute.
Officer Tassone says it took until about 8 am to clear the vehicles from the roadway but there was already a huge back up by then and it was quite some time for all the vehicles to clear out.
