YUBA COUNTY, Calif. (KTXL) — Multiple vehicles crashed Tuesday morning along Highway 70 in Yuba County after gravel poured onto the roadway.

The California Highway Patrol reported the crash around 6:45 a.m., saying at least 10 vehicles were involved.

Southbound traffic in the area of Plumas Lake Boulevard, south of Olivehurst, was diverted away from the half-mile-long gravel spill and crash scene, the CHP reported.

The CHP did not say if anyone was injured in the multi-vehicle crash.
