On Sunday, two separate accidents brought traffic on the Highway 101 southbound to a stop, just south of Sheffield Drive near the construction zone.
The first accident occurred around 7:20 a.m., on the south side of Sheffield Drive, between two cars. Right after, a second crash happened in the same area, this time with four vehicles.
The highway saw both lanes blocked after the accidents, but crews moved the accident into one lane to help other traffic pass, by 8 a.m., although the immense traffic still caused heavy delays. The tow trucks cleared the area by 10 a.m.
The drivers suffered minor injuries.
