Multiple lanes on Highway 24 closed due to an accident

Lafayette, California – Early Wednesday, an Acura car collided with a large truck on westbound Highway 24, closing down multiple lanes and causing traffic to back up for miles for several hours.

The incident was initially reported around 6:48 a.m. on the busy highway near Pleasant Hill Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The sedan reportedly crashed into the big rig as it was stopped on the freeway. The collision shut down lanes 3, 4, 5 and 6.

An injury was also reported. A SigAlert was issued as commuters clogged other routes toward Walnut Creek, slowing the commute across the East Bay.

The CHP reported all lanes were reopened at 9 a.m.
