SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — All lanes have reopened on northbound U.S. Highway 101 at the Montague Expressway exit following a collision that blocked traffic for more than an hour, the California Highway Patrol said.
One person was taken to a local hospital following the two-car collision, which left one vehicle overturned, CHP Officer Eric Anderson said.
The crash, reported at 3:30 p.m., closed three lanes at one point, causing traffic to back up. All lanes were reopened to traffic shortly before 5 p.m.
