A chain-reaction of crashes this morning in Sonoma caused California Highway Patrol to close the eastbound lanes of Highway 37 around 7:55 a.m., the San Jose Mercury News reports. Heavy fog seems to have played a role in the series of crashes that may have involved as many as 10 to 30 vehicles. Witnesses reported the first collisions of the February 8, 2012 incident occurring east of Skaggs Island Road, and past the Second Napa Slough, the Mercury News explains.
The first reports that responders received were not clear as to how many vehicles had collided. Some witnesses guessed the number may have involved anywhere from 10 vehicles to 30. The Mercury News reports that 10 tow trucks were initially sent to the scene, and Caltrans was asked to set up electronic signs and barriers to divert traffic away from the crash sites.
No information was available as to the extent of injuries of the people involved in the collisions. Other news sources said as many as five separate crashes involved multiple vehicles, and KTVU reports that California Highway Patrol said 15 vehicles had collided, including a motorcycle and a big-rig. The accident site is located on a stretch of highway that passes through swampland and marsh.
