Around 8:40 a.m., two trucks crashed head-on, and a third vehicle was side-swiped near Clark Valley Road and the Los Osos cemetery.

Following the crash, authorities stopped traffic in both directions and rerouted westbound drivers to South Bay Boulevard via Turri Road. Officers also closed Los Osos Valley Road to eastbound traffic at South Bay Boulevard. Lanes were expected to reopen at 11 a.m.

The cause of the crash is yet to be determined. An investigation is ongoing.
