A huge dust storm closed a busy road in Butte County for more than two hours Tuesday evening.

The storm caused a traffic accident around 6 p.m. on East Gridley Road, near Highway 70.

There were no injuries from the two vehicle accident but the visability is so bad, motorists can't see the roadway. It's believed the wind, combined with dust from a recently plowed field caused the storm. The closure is at the west side of the bridge at the Gridley Labor Camp.
