Police escort California students to graduation after highway pileup

CAJON PASS, California -- California Highway Patrol officers stepped up to help two high school students caught up in a major pileup while on their way to graduation on Wednesday.

The two students were headed to their commencement ceremony at an amphitheater. According to information posted on the school's website, the ceremony was set to begin at 11 a.m.

Around 12:45 p.m., the students found themselves still stuck on the freeway, where multiple vehicles were involved in a massive pileup amid foggy conditions.

That's when the California Highway Patrol stepped in.

Officers offered the students a police escort to their ceremony. The students, dressed in their royal blue caps and gowns, hopped into an awaiting CHP SUV, which hopefully helped the students make it on time to walk at the ceremony.
