SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Several vehicles were disabled due to a pothole left by a chunk of crumbling highway along Interstate 5 Thursday morning.

The scene is just south of the Richards Boulevard exit on the northbound side of the freeway.

According to California Highway Patrol, the incident was first reported a little before 6 a.m.

At least 20 cars pulled over to the shoulder, but it’s unclear how many were due to flat tires.

The incident is along the same stretch of freeway where a large chunk of roadway broke away earlier in August. Several cars were damaged by the chunk or had their tires flattened by the resulting pothole.

CHP also said they dealt with a similar incident along the same stretch of freeway on Wednesday.

One lane of the freeway was blocked due to Thursday’s incident, but all lanes have since reopened.
