(KGTV) - Heavy snow, mudslides and crashes led the California Highway Patrol to shut down Interstate 5 and Pacific Coast Highway Monday.

Both directions of I-5 closed through the Grapevine pass due to snow and crashes, Caltrans reported. The snow was expected to continue falling through the early evening.

Mountain driving was especially treacherous near SR-58 and several big rigs overturned, according to KABC.
