Exactly what led up to the crash is unclear, but it left only one lane of I-5 open.
Traffic is now backing up to Elk Grove due to the crash. Expect it to take nearly an hour to get from Laguna Boulevard to Sutterville Road.
All lanes were cleared just before 8:30 a.m., but Caltrans warns to expect residual traffic through the morning.
