police-light-bar1.jpgAll lanes of southbound Interstate Highway 280 in San Francisco have been reopened following a multi-vehicle crash that blocked the roadway Sunday night, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash involved four vehicles, leaving an unknown amount of motorists injured, Caggiano said.

“It all started off with a solo vehicle hitting the center median,” Caggiano said. “And it just snowballed from there.”

The three leftmost lanes were closed just north of San Jose Ave. at about 11:35 p.m., CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano said. A Sig-alert was issued at 11:39 p.m.

Officers cancelled the Sig-alert just before 12:25 a.m., after fluids that had leaked onto the roadway were absorbed.

“Apparently, when the vehicles crashed, the oil pans ripped apart and ended up spilling radiator fluid and oil all over the roadway,” Caggiano said.
