The crash occurred about 5:30 a.m. on the highway near Nader Road when a small pickup and another vehicle collided. Two people had to be extricated by rescue workers, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash backed up some traffic in both directions as the highway was closed to allow a medical helicopter to land. Motorists were detoured off the highway at Nader Road.
