I5 Closed Due to Massive ‘Mile’s Worth of Damaged Vehicles’

UPDATE 10:34 P.M.: Caltrans is reporting “detour in place via SR 263.” But there is no estimate of when Interstate 5 will open.

———————————-

The Redding Searchlight is reporting a “mile’s worth of damaged vehicles” about 10 miles south of the Oregon border on I5 near the intersection with Hwy 96.  The entire interstate is closed down. The accident, which the CHP site is reporting began with two semi trucks apparently sliding on black ice into a concrete wall, soon escalated into a disaster zone.  The Searchlight is reporting as many as 60 vehicles may be involved.

Caltrans is reporting I5 “IS CLOSED TO NORTHBOUND TRAFFIC AT THE JCT OF SR 96 (SISKIYOU CO) 
– DUE TO AN ACCIDENT – A DETOUR IS AVAILABLE.”

Below the map is the current CHP dispatch report as it came in.
