POWAY, Calif. (KGTV) - A multi-vehicle crash on state Route 67 in the Poway area forced the closure of lanes and created a traffic backup during the Friday morning commute.

The wreck on the two-lane highway occurred at around 6:40 a.m., with vehicles crashing on the southbound lane near Poway Road.

At least five vehicles were involved in the crash, witnesses told 10News. Emergency responders were called to the scene, but there is no immediate word on potential injuries.

The cause of the crash is unknown, but one driver said the roadway was slick due to the overnight rain.

Southbound SR-67 near Poway Road was shut down for at least one hour as crews worked to clear the scene.
