Here’s what caused the crash that tied up traffic Friday afternoon on Highway 41

A solo-vehicle crash along Highway 41 in eastern Madera County held up traffic Friday afternoon.

According to the California Highway Patrol, around 11:30 a.m. a white Chevrolet Tahoe hit an embankment near Rocky Cut and veered back onto the roadway, coming to a stop blocking the southbound lane. The driver did not suffer any injuries, but his SUV required a tow.

The highway was reduced to one-way traffic for a little more than an hour before the crash was cleared, said CHP Officer Gregorio Rodriguez.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
