Rain causes travel problems in Sacramento area

Rain causes travel problems in Sacramento area


The much-needed rain storm throughout the Sacramento area on Tuesday did not go off without a hitch.

The wet and slippery roads caused major travel problems for commuters during the evening rush hour. The heavy congestion was a headache for drivers who were stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.

Dozens of vehicle accidents were reported, including a solo-vehicle roll over crash on Exposition Boulevard. The driver walked away without injuries.

"There's a lot of traffic and accidents so it kind of helped me," said Lea Johnson, who found herself stuck in traffic, trying to make her flight out of Sacramento International Airport.

Luckily for Johnson, her flight, as well as dozens of others, were delayed because of the inclement weather.

"First, they told me 35 minutes [delay] and now, it's almost an hour," she said.

5 arrested in 'Hands up, don't shop' protest in Arden Fair Mall


Five people were taken into custody during a protest Friday evening at Arden Fair Mall, according to Sacramento police.

Protesters gathered outside the mall at 3 p.m. to join a national demonstration called "Hands up, don't shop!" -- a protest aimed at the grand jury's decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as Black Friday shopping.

Law enforcement, including Sacramento police and California Highway Patrol, were on hand for crowd and traffic control, making sure protesters weren't in the streets or blocking shoppers.

While the protest started peacefully, it got more heated as it went on. Demonstrators chanted, carried signs and walked from the street and around Arden Fair Mall.
