This afternoon’s commute was a messy one for Elk Grove commuters. Shortly after 4 pm a 3 car accident on southbound 99 completely blocked traffic south of Elk Grove extending to Sacramento. That forced drivers to use surface streets throughout Elk Grove.
Shortly after 6 pm an accident leading to an overturned vehicle near the intersection Franklin and Laguna slowed traffic down. According to the Elk Grove police, there were minor injuries.
At 6:30 another accident, this time at Auto Center and Elk Grove Blvd slowed traffic down. No word on any injuries from that accident.
