California Highway Patrol officers are at the scene of a vehicle rollover that happened on Highway 101 northbound in Santa Maria, just north of the off-ramp to Highway 166.

Dispatchers say a Mercedes-Benz sedan flipped onto its roof in the fast lane on the highway just after 7 a.m. Wednesday.

No one was injured in the collision but there is some damage to a guardrail.

Traffic is slow through the area and reportedly backed up to Broadway. CHP officers are running traffic breaks to help speed up the flow of traffic.
