The Lamorinda area experienced some major traffic on Christmas, as Highway 24 backed up in the eastbound direction.
According to the California Highway Patrol, two cars collided on eastbound Highway 24, near the Acalanes Road exit, around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Both cars experienced major damage, and there was at least one injury reported.
The two right lanes were blocked on eastbound Highway 24 as a result of the accident and backed up traffic. The lanes were reopened by 4:00 p.m., and the traffic soon subsided.
The weather, particularly the rain, also played a part in creating holiday traffic in the area.
