A witness told KTVU he saw the shooting and pulled over in shock to call CHP.
He said the shooting appeared to result from a road-rage incident involving a black sedan and a white GMC Terrain SUV.
"They swerved around a bunch of cars," said the witness, who wished only to be identified as Jeff. "It looked like one was trying to ram the other. I saw gunshots come out of the black sedan into the white SUV."
The shooting led to a chain-reaction collision. A Corvette slammed into the right shoulder near Hillcrest.
The lanes were reopened around 8 a.m. after CHP cleared the scene.
