The California Highway Patrol said a multi-vehicle crash involving several big rigs early in the morning caused backups on I-80 eastbound at Farad.

Once the scene of the crash was nearly cleared, another crash was reported to the west near Soda Springs. The CHP said westbound lanes of the interstate are still moving but drivers should get ready for heavy traffic due to an overturned big rig on the shoulder at the Boreal Ridge Road exit.
