LOS GATOS, Calif. (AP) - A major San Francisco Bay Area highway was shut down after a big rig crash that authorities say left one person dead and four others injured.

The crash on northbound Highway 17 in Los Gatos occurred a little bit before 8 a.m. Thursday. The California Highway Patrol says the big rig was traveling northbound when it hit numerous other vehicles, causing one driver to be ejected.

The driver and his vehicle were then dragged. The driver died. CHP Officer Ross Lee tells the San Jose Mercury News four other people suffered minor injuries.

Steve Salika, a witness, tells the newspaper the truck plowed into traffic that was almost at a standstill. It was not clear what caused the driver to lose control.

Northbound Highway 17 was shut down after the crash. The highway connects Silicon Valley to Santa Cruz.
