Numerous drivers and vehicle occupants declined treatment.

San Bernardino County officials reported “extremely low” visibility in the area because of fog, according to Fox 11. Southern California is experiencing a deep intrusion of marine air that has brought low clouds, fog and rain.

The pass runs between the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains and rises to an elevation of nearly 3,800 feet.
