The California Highway Patrol has cleared all lanes of Interstate Highway 280 in Santa Clara County following a fatal crash this afternoon, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was first reported at about 12:10 p.m. when a white pickup truck struck the center divide on southbound Highway 280 about a mile north of an off-ramp to Foothill Expressway, CHP Officer James Evans said.

As many as two other vehicles were believed to have been involved, he said.

One person was killed in the crash, Evans said.

No other injuries were reported.

One lane of Highway 280 was blocked for more than two hours during a CHP investigation, Evans said.
