BERKELEY (CBS SF) — A multiple vehicle crash late Friday morning involving a big-rig truck that briefly shut down all westbound lanes of I-80 in Berkeley just east of the Ashby Avenue exit has been cleared, according to authorities.

Shortly after 11 a.m., a crash involving four vehicles — a big-rig truck, a Dodge of some model, a Honda Civic and a Honda SUV — blocked all westbound lanes. Authorities later updated the report to state that a fifth car was involved.

A Sig-Alert was issued at 11:18 a.m. CHP and area fire department units have responded to the accident. So far there is no word on injuries.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., the left two lanes were reopened, but there was still a massive back-up for traffic on I-580 from the Richmond-Rafael Bridge and I-80 westbound in Richmond.

The third center lane was reopened at about 11:45 a.m. with the fourth lane reopening shortly afterwards. All lanes were reopened by about 12 p.m., according to authorities.

Motorists are advised to expect residual delays.

  1. SF Bay Area is full of blooming idiots behind the wheel. This is just a small sampling of what goes on the roads there every single day.

    Come to Arizona, where people know how to drive and have courtesy 🙂
