FAIRFIELD — As many as six vehicles were involved in a late-night crash Saturday on Interstate 80 that left three westbound lanes blocked into early Sunday.
The crash was initially reported as a two-vehicle accident at 11:45 p.m. on westbound I-80 just east of the Travis Boulevard offramp, with both vehicles coming to a stop in the fast lane. Emergency responders quickly updated the location to the area of westbound I-80 west of Waterman Boulevard, with shattered glass all over the roadway. Soon after it was reported that six vehicles were involved with one vehicle flipped onto its roof, according to the California Highway Patrol website.
A severe traffic alert was issued shortly after midnight Sunday due to the three blocked lanes. All lanes were clear shortly before 1 a.m.
