All lanes of southbound U.S. Highway 101 in San Rafael are open Tuesday morning after the California Highway Patrol closed highway as they investigated a fatal collision that occurred late Monday night.

At 11:20 p.m., the California Highway Patrol received a report of a vehicle going the wrong way in the highway's southbound lanes, just north of Central San Rafael exit, according to the CHP.

The vehicle then collided with a big rig, CHP Officer Peter Van Eckhard said.

A person in one of the vehicles lost consciousness and became trapped inside, according to CHP officials.

At 11:33 p.m., the CHP issued a Sig-alert, blocking three of the highway's southbound lanes, as CHP officials investigated the incident.

The CHP canceled the Sig-alert Tuesday morning, reopening all lanes, CHP officials said in a Twitter message at 4:07 a.m.
