Near the summit of the Cajon Pass, which reaches 4,100 feet, June gloom fog may be the culprit in a chain reaction crash that has involved up to 50 cars, reports the Associated Press. "There was like three, four big-rigs, a couple cars accordioned in between them. In all between the three accidents, 50 cars-plus," said one driver who zig zagged through the mess that began around 7:30 a.m.

The wreckage is scattered throughout a half mile of northbound lanes. Injuries are reported, but the number and severity of them is unknown.
