CHP reported that it is unknown whether the person was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and confirmed that the truck driver was not under the influence of substances at the time of the incident. CHP confirmed that traffic was heavily affected, and motorists were advised to seek alternate routes due to the delays caused by the closure.
