California Highway Patrol says, a little before 9 a.m., a dump truck driver had to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision along the westbound side of the freeway near Stockton Boulevard.

With the mess causing several vehicles to spin out, CHP officers closed the #2, 3, 4 and 5 lanes so that Caltrans clean-up crews could get to work.

It took around three and a half hours to clean up the mess, but as of early Friday afternoon all lanes are now back open.
