REDDING, Calif. -

Traffic was slowed Wednesday morning in Redding after a crash involving five vehicles.  The collision happened just before 8 a.m. on westbound Highway 44 near the Park Marina Exit.

There were at least 3 SUVs and one car involved in the wreck.  Three females were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Highway 44 was backed up to Interstate 5.  Eastbound traffic was also slowed due to emergency vehicles at the scene.    CALTRANS used a signboard to alert drivers on Interstate 5 of the traffic hazard.
