ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. - One lane of Highway 101 was closed in Arroyo Grande after a large truck crashed into the center divider Tuesday afternoon.

It happened around 1:13 p.m. in the southbound lanes near Brisco Road, north of Grand Avenue.

Only one vehicle was reportedly involved in this crash.

It is unclear if anyone was injured.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by CHP.
