An insect is being blamed for a Monday morning rollover in Chico.

The accident happened around 8:00 Monday morning, when a young woman was traveling westbound on Eaton Road when she ran into multiple parked vehicles.

Chico Police Sergeant Rob Merrifield said the woman was likely distracted by an insect inside her vehicle.

The woman hit a white Chevrolet pickup and then struck the back of a Toyota Tundra. The impact caused her compact car to flip.

Officials at the scene say the woman's speed may have also been a factor. Nobody was injured in the accident, but five vehicles were damaged.
