Sierra Highway Forced To Close After Accident

UPDATED 1:40pm, Thursday December 20th.  

 

Sponsored By:

An evolving incident prompted the complete closure of Sierra Highway at Foothill Blvd for a large portion of Thursday morning.  A vehicle accident had knocked down power lines.

 

As of 1:40pm, The California Highway Patrol had stopped reporting any closures.  

 

The accident occurred just before 7:00am Thursday morning and it involved three vehicles. 

 

That portion of Sierra Highway is a popular detour for commuters who do not wish to take Highway 14 out of Santa Clarita.   Therefore, the impacts of this closure were very large for Santa Clarita commuters.
