    A solo-vehicle crash involving a California Highway Patrol cruiser temporarily blocked all lanes of southbound Highway 101 in Redwood City Thursday morning, according to the CHP.

    Both officers involved in the crash, which occurred near Whipple Avenue, were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, according to CHP Redwood City spokesperson Art Montiel.

    The officers were responding to help another unit making a stop when the driver of the cruiser lost control for an "unknown reason" and slammed into the center divider, Montiel said.

    A Sig-Alert was issued at 3:13 a.m. because the crash was impacting all lanes of southbound traffic, according to the CHP. All lanes reopened at 5:40 a.m.
