Chain Of Collisions on Highway 120 Left Multiple Injured

MANTECA, CA (December 2, 2021) Multiple people sustained injuries after a chain of collisions on Highway 120 Thursday morning.

California Highway Patrol said the chain of collisions involving two big rigs shut down eastbound of the Highway near Union Road for several hours.

Moreover, the crash happened just after 11:30 a.m. and all lanes responded at around 3:42 p.m.

The CHP said one big rig rear-ended a second big rig, causing the second one to rear-end a third vehicle.

In total, three people suffered injuries — one with major injuries and two with only minor ones.

The lengthy road closure was due to hazardous material falling into the roadway. The CHP said it appears the material was likely gasoline or fluids spilled during the collisions.
