Crews took a little more than two hours to clear an off-ramp on U.S. Highway 101 in Palo Alto after a solo vehicle crash in the area Sunday morning left multiple people injured, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Around 2:40 a.m., a car heading north on Highway 101 near the San Antonio Road off-ramp veered off of the roadway and into some bushes, according to the CHP.
Witnesses reporting the crash said multiple people inside the car had visible injuries. No information about the nature of those injuries was available Sunday morning.
The CHP reported that fire crews would need to cut trees off of the roadway in order to remove the vehicle.
Fire crews blocked the San Antonio Road off-ramp for nearly two hours during the emergency response to the crash, according to the CHP. The ramp reopened after 4 a.m., according to the CHP.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
