SAN MATEO (CBS SF) — All northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 101 just north of the connector to state Highway 92 in San Mateo reopened late Wednesday night, after a major-injury accident, according to a California Highway Patrol officer.

A vehicle overturned and caught fire, which was reported at 10:35 p.m. A Sig-alert was issued at 11 p.m. and then canceled at 11:23 p.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Van Eckhardt.

Northbound Highway 101 lanes were closed as a person from the solo-vehicle accident was airlifted to Stanford Hospital for major injuries, Van Eckhardt said.

The Fashion Island Boulevard on-ramp was closed until midnight, according to the CHP.
