    A big rig crashed on Highway 101 in San Rafael late Wednesday night, leaving at least one person dead, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The crash occurred about 10:30 p.m. on northbound 101 at North San Pedro Road, and initially blocked all lanes on that side of the freeway, the CHP said.

    The accident caused diesel fuel to leak onto the roadway because of a punctured fuel tank and spread concrete debris across the freeway, the CHP said.

    One lane was later reopened, but there was no estimated time for reopening the other lanes, the CHP said.
