UPDATE: The crash was cleared by 9 a.m.


ORIGINAL STORY: Commuters headed northbound on Highway 101 will likely run into some delays after three cars collided Monday morning.

According to CHP, the crash happened at about 6:30 a.m. near the N. Tefft St. offramp. An ambulance was sent to the scene but the extent of any injuries is unclear at this time.

Just after 7 a.m., officers reported the involved vehicles had been moved off to the righthand side of the highway. However, drivers say traffic remains slow through the area.

Both lanes of the highway are open but drivers may want to allow for extra time as the crash scene is cleaned up.
