Snow Causes Collisions, Road Closures in Southern California Mountains

A major storm moving east over California brought rain and flooding to lower elevations and heavy snow to the mountains on Thursday, December 6, forcing the closure of Interstate 5 over The Grapevine.

The California Highway Patrol said there were multiple accidents on the steep stretch of highway over Tejon Pass.

Local news reported that police were escorting drivers over some other mountain roads. Credit: CHP – Fort Tejon – Grapevine via Storyful
