Multi-Vehicle Pileup Near Truckee as Winter Storm Causes Highway Closure

Interstate 80 was closed in parts of Northern California on Sunday, February 26, due to heavy snow, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

Footage by Jenelle Potvin shows a multi-vehicle pileup on I-80 east between Castle Peak and Truckee, she said.

I-80 was closed eastbound from Colfax to the Nevada state line due to heavy snow, while westbound traffic was being held at the Nevada state line due to multiple spinouts, the CHP said.

The National Weather Service said multiple waves of valley rain and dangerous mountain and foothill snow were expected across the region on Sunday into Tuesday. Credit: Jenelle Potvin via Storyful
