TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Four people were hospitalized due to a crash involving a big rig on northbound I-5, near the Flores exit.

Authorities told our reporter at the scene that a car caught fire while driving northbound on I-5. The car was then hit by a big rig driving behind it, which caused the big rig to also go partially off the road. 

Traffic controls are in place on northbound I-5. According to Caltrans District 2, one lane is open but there are still two lanes closed as crews continue to clean up the crash. 

Traffic was originally being redirected at Giles Road. 

Caltrans District 2 does not have an estimated time that all lanes will be open and they are telling motorists in the area to expect delays.
