17 injured in multi-vehicle pileup on 15 Freeway in Cajon Pass

The southbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Southern California's Cajon Pass have reopened after a pileup in fog that injured 17 people.

California Department of Transportation district spokeswoman Terri Kasinga says the interstate reopened shortly before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday but conditions remain foggy.

As many as 20 vehicles collided around 11 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the high pass through mountains about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

All but two of the injuries were considered minor.

The pass runs between the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains and rises to an elevation of nearly 3,800 feet.

Southern California is experiencing a deep intrusion of marine air that has brought low clouds, fog and rain.
