Accident Briefly Closes 101 by Fernbridge; U-Haul Van Reportedly Rear Ended Other Vehicles Then Fled
About 6:30 p.m. a U-Haul reportedly “sped up and rear ended two vehicles” near Fernbridge Drive offramp, according to the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page. One of the vehicles that was hit was a Toyota Tacoma. It landed on its passenger side and had major rollover damage.
For about 10 minutes fire diverted traffic off the freeway. Then, for some time one-way controlled traffic was in effect. According to scanner traffic, once the last vehicle is removed from the road, the highway will be opened entirely.
The U-Haul driver fled the scene and the vehicle was eventually found. At this time, it isn’t clear whether a driver was located with the vehicle or not.
