What might be at issue, perhaps, is a problem with Carbon Creek and its effects on the roadbed of the highway. This, some will remember, became an issue in the heavy rains of 2004-05, when part of the westbound section of Carbon Canyon Road collapsed between Canyon Hills Road and Canon Lane.

CORRECTION: Traffic is also being stopped in both directions at Olinda Village, but whether there is a separate problem, given the steep slopes on the downhill west of there towards Olinda Ranch and possible mudslides there, or related to the Sleepy Hollow incident is not known.

Here is a link to a Inland Valley Daily Bulletin piece on a car that got stuck in the area shown in the above photo, but earlier on Friday morning: click here.
Meanwhile, here is a rare instance of a double rainbow, captured on later Friday afternoon:
