The accident took place on the northbound lanes at Exit 34 to Del Mar Heights Road. It was first reported to the CHP at 2:48 p.m.

Authorities have not said what led up to the crash, but up to five vehicles were involved. A black Tesla SUV came to rest blocking lanes 1 and 2, a white Acura was found overturned in lane 3, a white van and a gray Toyota Prius were reported on the right shoulder, and a Cadillac CT4 was stopped in the HOV lane about 1.4 miles north from the crash site.
