Lanes Reopen along I-80 at Cap City Freeway Following Deadly Crash

SACRAMENTO — A motorcyclist was killed early Monday after a crash along westbound Interstate 80 near the Cap City Freeway.

The California Highway Patrol said some witnesses reported the motorcyclist was speeding and weaving through traffic before sideswiping a car, though detectives are still sorting through statements. Investigators say that triggered a chain reaction crash shortly before 4 a.m.

Officials said four lanes of I-80 were shut down. The lanes were reopened around 8 a.m., though drivers should expect some residual traffic delays.

This is a developing story.
