Carlsbad Wreck Involving Semi-Truck on I-5
A wreck in the northbound lanes of I-5 sent at least one person to the hospital on Tuesday morning. An SUV reportedly spun out of control and rear-ended a semi-truck. The wreck occurred south of Cannon Road in Carlsbad on September 17th. A traffic alert was issued, and at least one person went to the hospital. According to the California Highway Patrol, traffic had to be shut down in both directions for almost two hours. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that in addition to the SUV and semi-truck, an additional vehicle may have been involved.
Paramedics transported at least one victim to Scripps La Jolla Hospital. No information was released about the extent of injuries involved. The roadways had to be cleared of wreckage and debris before they could be reopened around 7:00 a.m. Since no word on the cause of the crash has been released, it is likely still under investigation.
