California Highway Patrol and Cal Fire responded to the scene. The Major Accident Investigation Team came from Sacramento to investigate the incident, according to a tweet by Cal Fire.
Drivers were advised to use alternate routes, as the closures were expected through Saturday afternoon.
CHP advised drivers to be careful of driving in the fog at the time of the accident. Visibility in the Sacramento Valley was low overnight and on Saturday, possibly contributing to the accident.
After Friday’s rain and lingering moisture, periods of clearing throughout the night allowed for evaporation into low clouds and fog. The low clouds caused overcast skies, Karleisa Rogacheski, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Sacramento, said.

For people who can’t work from home, reliable transportation is crucial to keep their jobs and their incomes.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — For people who can’t work from home, reliable transportation is crucial to keep their jobs and their incomes.
For some people, just getting to work stands in the way of staying employed.
A new program coming to our state is designed to change that. Tennessee is getting a $270,000 grant to rethink transportation.
“What we will be using these funds for is to conduct a statewide study effort to design a process that will allow us to provide transportation services to those most in need, specifically those who are looking for employment,” said Preston Elliot, who works for the Bureau of Environment and Planning.
He also said that the goal is to create free or reduced-cost transportation to work or job training in the communities that need it the most.
“What this allows us to do is look for opportunities,” Elliot said. “Let’s say in West Tennessee — we could target a specific functionality with the trip delivery or specific agency or program.”
Similar systems are already in Knoxville and in the Tri-City’s.
Elliot says over the next six months; his team will be canvassing Tennessee.
“Access to jobs is often times that cost for transportation,” he said. “This effort is really to remove that barrier.”
Nashville MTA also received $180,000 in funding. That money will go toward community outreach and the proposed North Nashville Transit Center.
Phoenix police arrested 35-year-old Steven Orona on suspicion of shooting a motorist who died after a single-vehicle rollover crash in the area of Seventh Avenue and Gibson Lane in September.
Detectives developed probable cause during the investigation to arrest Orona on Thursday in connection with the shooting and crash, Phoenix police said Friday in an email.
Orona reportedly admitted shooting the victim, 39-year-old Larry Milligan, who was the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, the police email said.

According to court documents, at around 1:46 p.m. on Sept. 24, Orona pulled up to Milligan’s vehicle and fatally shot him once in the head while he was driving north on Seventh Avenue after a possible road rage incident.
Milligan’s car rolled over in the roadway, according to court documents. Police officers checked his condition and found a gunshot wound. Phoenix Fire Department personnel pronounced him dead at the location.
Police secured video of the moment a green Toyota RAV4 pulled alongside the victim’s vehicle and fired once into the open driver’s window, the documents stated.
Orona’s girlfriend, who was in the vehicle, later told police that Milligan had “tried to push their vehicle out of the lane of travel,” according to court documents.
Neither Orona nor his girlfriend called the police or stayed at the crash, according to court documents. Orona told police he believed he was protecting his girlfriend from Milligan and saw a handgun.
Police did not find any firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition inside Milligan’s vehicle, court documents stated.
Orona’s RAV4 was later found at the Buckeye property belonging to his girlfriend’s family, and the handgun was located at Orona’s house, according to court documents.
Orona was arrested Thursday and booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and a drive-by shooting. His bail was to set to $1 million, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 23.
When Graham Austin — inventor, bicycle maker and church pastor — opened a bike museum in Launceston, Tasmania, he welcomed in schoolkids and the community.
The Zions Hill Bike Museum contains more than 300 bikes
It opened in the early 2000s but has been closed to the public since 2011
The daughter of the museum’s founder Graham Austin is calling for a group of volunteers to get it back up and running
Now, a decade after the museum was closed, his daughter hopes the intact collection, which is tucked away in an old high school building in the Launceston suburb of Ravenswood, can be revived and opened for public viewing.
More than 300 bicycles are on display, but since Mr Austin died in 2011 they have mainly been collecting dust.
“It’s actually a whole lifetime of collection,” his daughter, Merrilyn Billings, said.
“He would go to auctions to try and find something he didn’t have, and he would then bid for it and put it with his collection.”
Mr Austin opened the museum in the Zions Hill Church at Ravenswood — about 10 minutes from Launceston’s city centre — in the early 2000s.
“He moved out to an area with a lot of needs and used to take people out on bike rides,” Ms Billings said.
“When he first opened it, school groups came in and had a look, and children from the community used to bring in their bikes for him to repair.”
Mr Austin also made his own bikes, called Ausso bikes.
“He used to take little bits and pieces and make crazy sort of bikes and little penny farthings and all of that.
“One time, years ago, he built a fun park down the West Tamar, down on the wetlands, and that’s where he used to bring out all his contraptions.”
‘Waiting for the right people’ to reopen it
Many bikes at the Zions Hill Bike Museum were made in Tasmania, while others were from around the world.
A bike ridden by retired Australian track cyclist Danny Clark in his early days hangs in the “hall of fame” section of the museum.
Other bikes, including an old McKinlay’s Department Store delivery bike — a store once in Launceston’s Brisbane Street mall — were donated.
