UPDATE (2:23 p.m.) - All lanes of Hwy 101 in the area reopened by about 1:30 on Monday afternoon.

(1:03 p.m.) - One lane of Hwy 101 has reopened after a crash brought traffic to a standstill near the Sheffield Dr. off-ramp in Montecito on Monday.

CHP officials say the multi-vehicle crash happened just before noon on Nov. 15 when a Honda SUV and a Porsche collided. Initial reports say the SUV rolled over multiple times and landed on its roof.

Both northbound lanes of the highway were blocked by the crash, and southbound traffic was heavily backed up, CHP said.

Officials are working to clear the crash scene so both northbound lanes can reopen.
