The incident happened just after 6 a.m. just east of Echo Summit.

No injuries have been reported, but an SUV did crash into the boulders that slid onto the roadway just after the slide.

A detour is in place from Highway 16 to Highway 49 south, Highway 88 east, to Highway 89 north to Highway 50 in Meyers for drivers heading eastbound from Sacramento. People heading from Placerville should take Highway 49 south to Highway 88 east to Highway 89 north into South Lake Tahoe.
