An Isuzu box truck and a GMC SUV were heading westbound in the express lanes.


Near milepost 66.6, the Toyota struck the curbed median, entered the express lanes, and collided with the Volvo tractor-trailer.


The impact caused the Volvo to strike the center concrete median and veer into the westbound express lanes, where it collided with the Isuzu box truck.
