The CHP reports that a piece of farm equipment carrying hay tipped over and it is blocking a lane of traffic. “There is one-way traffic right now, and you’ll be tied up probably one-to-two minutes while you wait for them to waive you through,” says Rebecca Myers, CHP Spokesperson. “The northbound lane is blocked at this time.” 

One person reported injuries as a result of the crash. The accident has resulted in some deep gouges in the highway. Caltrans has been notified about the situation and the need for repairs. It is unknown how long there will be delays. Click here to view a map.
