CHICO, Calif. - Power outages on Highway 99 and Southgate Ave. caused backed up traffic and a five-vehicle collision.

Four vehicles came to a complete stop because of backed up traffic due to the traffic light power outage.

A Toyota pickup truck crashed into those four cars, causing the Toyota to flip over into the center divider.

Three cars were totaled, injuries were minor, and nobody was sent to the hospital. 

"Please slow down and increase following distance, drivers to have safe following distance when driving by injury collision scenes," Officer Murphy CHP said.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
