Chico Five-Vehicle Accident Blocks Highway 99
Chico, CA (May 20, 2021) – Earlier today, a five-vehicle crash blocked Highway 99.
The multi-vehicle crash took place at about 6 a.m. between Chico and Vina.
The CHP worked to get the accident scene cleared.
Highway 99 has been cleared from the wreckage and traffic has returned to normal.
Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Maintain some distance between your car and the car ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the car ahead make a sudden turn or stop.
Traffic experts say using a three to four seconds gap would help.
This simply means you should look ahead for a stationary object, as soon as the car ahead of yours passes the object, start counting the seconds until you pass the same object.
