A traffic accident Friday morning has led to closure of southbound lanes of Interstate 5 north of Oceanside, the California Highway Patrol reported.
A collision between a flatbed truck and three big rigs two miles south of Basilone Road led to a fuel spill across all lanes, the CHP said. Hazardous-material crews have been summoned for cleanup.
The closure was reported by CHP at 7:18 a.m. By 8:27 a.m., drivers were being allowed to use the shoulder, the CHP said.
The closure has caused a massive backup of vehicles.
