Rollover crash slows Interstate 5 during Friday morning commute

Rollover crash halting traffic on Interstate 5

BUTTONWILLOW, Calif. - A person was hurt after a rollover crash on southbound Interstate 5 just north of Stockdale Highway in Buttonwillow.

California Highway Patrol officials said a gray sedan drifted off the road and then flipped and landed on its roof in the center divider of the interstate about 7:10 a.m. Friday. They say injuries do not appear to serious.

Good Samaritans were initially blocking the fast lane to get out and help the victim inside.

Southbound traffic was backing up behind the wreck.

The roadway has since been cleared.
