Five-car wreck on 99 south of Elk Grove backs up traffic for miles, but no one hurt

·1 min read

A five-car pileup on Highway 99 south of Elk Grove backed up traffic for miles Monday afternoon but no injuries were reported.

Emergency crews were called at 2:21 p.m. to the chain-reaction collision on southbound Highway 99 between Grant Line and Dillard roads, said Cosumnes Fire Department Operations Chief Dan Quiggle, a department spokesman. Cosumnes units headed to the scene, but were later sent back to their stations.

The vehicles were cleared from the roadway, Quiggle said, but Caltrans officials said in a Twitter post that the No. 1 lane remains closed with no estimated time of reopening.

Caltrans called a traffic alert following the collision that remained in effect nearing the 4 p.m. hour and the afternoon commute.

Southbound traffic on a back-to-work Monday afternoon after the Thanksgiving holiday was slow-and-go as far back as the Elk Grove Boulevard exit at Highway 99.
