Traffic collisions close highway late Monday

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – Two traffic collisions on Highway 29 in the vicinity of Spruce Grove Road closed down the highway Monday night.


The California Highway Patrol's incident logs reported that two collisions took place at about 6:25 p.m.


The first collision involved a vehicle that was reported to be on fire, according to the CHP logs.


The second crash, which the CHP reported took place just south of the first, involved two vehicles – one of which was a pickup on its roof. A single-axle trailer, which possibly was towed by the pickup, was reported to be on its side.


The CHP reports did not mention injuries to drivers or passengers, and did no specify the number of vehicles.


Four CHP units, Cal Fire, Lake County's Road's Department and Caltrans responded, according to CHP reports. Caltrans was asked to bring a sweeper to clean up the large amount of debris in the roadway. Tow companies also were called to remove vehicles involved.


The highway was closed at 7:12 p.m. while the cleanup took place. The roadway was reported to be clear by 9:13 p.m.


No further information was available Monday night.
