Major injuries have been reported.

Use an alternate route.

And it’s backed up all the way to the Sunshine Fire Station heading westbound.

I’m stuck in the traffic now too. Been here for 30 mins now. Any word on when traffic is going to start being rerouted?

It’s too bad so many people use MCR as their commute route, they run that road like a race track. Installing a dozen stop signs along the road & some CHP radar traps would help.
They should stick to Hwy 4 or Kirker Pass.

I stopped using that road a few months ago because everytime I used it someone would inevitably end up in my rearview mirror riding my a–
Bunch of idiots driving way too fast on that road! Has always been very dangerous since I can remember.

I was right behind the crash. This is the second time in 2 years I have had the horrible experience. The last time I was on my way home when the two boys were killed and my neighbor was injured. I unfortunately have no alternative as I live on MTR. I always drive safely which obviously annoys some who ride my A–! We need to do something to stop this dangerous insanity.

I was heading toward Stockton in the morning a while back. It was a scary freight train of cars commuting toward Concord. All going about 50 mile a hour and twenty feet apart. Never again, I’ll wait until after the morning commute is over.

I have heard that it is a double fatality :(. Is there any more update? Please people, slow down and pay attention.

Commuters get off of Marsh Creek Road.
Let those that live near and on it use safely.
Tired of this thing happening over and over.
CHP, you have a choice do it.

Commuters I meant hate auto correct.

Living out here it’s impossible to avoid using this road. Most of us out here pay absurdly high taxes- why do we receive NO services, like traffic enforcement?

Is the road still closed?

Way to text and drive @1, hopefully this collision was not a result of texting and driving.

I was nearly rammed from behind on two different occasions on that road, I won’t drive it again. I have a friend who lives out there and I never go see her anymore. Too dangerous. Please get a full time cop out there!
