Big crash on I205 SB around rt 30

Saw a big plume of smoke and traffic was backed up to the bridge. I managed to get off on the airport exit and take backroads. Anyone know about it? Must have been bad to close the freeway.

5. I saw a picture of two burned cars but they didn't say anyone had died

Sometimes when something like this happens I think if Id have been running 5 minutes earlier I could have been involved. Lucky coincidence, you never know when the hand of fate is going to tap you on the shoulder.
