A motor home towing a car went off the road in Tehama County, struck a power pole, caught on fire and caused major traffic delays.

Police say an RV was traveling eastbound on South Ave. towards Highway 99 when it struck a guard rail at the railroad crossing. The crash knocked the trailer carrying a car into oncoming traffic where it struck an SUV head-on.

The motor home went off the road and hit a power pole causing the RV to go up in flames. The RV was completely burned and the SUV was totaled.

Nobody was seriously injured in the crash.

According to the California Highway Patrol traffic information page, traffic on South Avenue was delayed more after a big rig jack knifed while making a U-turn to get out of traffic.

South Ave is expected to reopen around 11 a.m.
