Northbound traffic on Highway 99 is at a crawl near Panama Lane following a crash Tuesday morning.

CHP Officer Robert Rodriguez said a collision involving a big rig and a work truck caused the traffic jam.

Rodriguez said the work truck stalled on the 99 and was hit by a big rig at about 7 a.m.

All northbound lanes of the 99 were shut down, but two have been re-opened.

Rodriguez said all lanes should be clear by 10 a.m.

No injuries were reported in the crash.
