Tow truck rolls down hill, driver said tree saved him

SAN DIEGO - A driver lost control of his tow truck and rolled over on a San Diego freeway early Friday.

The driver said he felt the rear end of his truck sliding before he smashed through the guardrails. The truck then rolled down a hill and crashed into a tree.

The driver said his truck may have rolled down the hill further had the tree not been there.

The incident was reported around 3 a.m. on northbound Interstate 15 just south of Interstate 8 in the Kensington area.
