A multi-car wreck has tied-up traffic and shut down one lane of southbound Highway 99 just south of the Eaton Road overpass.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the driver of a truck lost control around 10:18 pm Saturday, rolling off the road, and causing another car to veer right off the highway and into a tree, then finally and landing in a ditch.

At least one person has been hospitalized. The CHP was able to clear one lane about 30 minutes later, and currently, traffic is moving. There is no word yet if drugs or alcohol were involved.

The cause is still under investigation.
