(BCN) — Southbound Interstate Highway 680 was closed for several hours Wednesday in the Pacheco area of Contra Costa County because of a crash between a big-rig and four other vehicles, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said. The collision was reported shortly before 7:45 a.m. on southbound Highway 680 just north of Pacheco Boulevard.
Two people suffered minor injuries in the crash, which caused the jackknifed big-rig to hit the center divider on the highway, CHP Officer Adam Lane said. The crash punctured the fuel tank of the big-rig and a small amount of diesel fuel spilled, but it was contained to the roadway and did not get into any drains or affect wildlife, Lane said.
All lanes of the highway were blocked in the area into the afternoon hours. The right two lanes opened first, and all lanes had reopened by around 3 p.m., Lane said.
