Fatal crash closes both directions of Highway 17 in Los Gatos

At least one person died in a crash that blocked all lanes in both directions of Highway 17 in Los Gatos, according to the California Highway Patrol. 

Calls for the accident came in Thursday at about 5:30 p.m. for the crash just south of the Redwood Estates off-ramp. A Sig-alert was still in effect as of 6:45 p.m. because both directions were still closed and there was no estimation for reopening.

CHP said they received reports that a vehicle was driving erratically prior to the crash.

No other vehicles were involved. 

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.
