SAN DIEGO - A multi-vehicle crash involving a jackknifed semi truck sent one person to the hospital and left a freeway onramp and part of northbound Interstate 805 in the North Park area closed Thursday.
The crash on the northbound I-805 at El Cajon Boulevard occurred just before 7:45 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. Caltrans reported that the far right lane of the freeway and the El Cajon Boulevard onramp were both closed until further notice due to the crash.
Paramedics took one person to Scripps Mercy Hospital, a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher said. The extent of the injury was unclear.
Another crash was reported in the South Bay on north I-805 at H Street and involved three vehicles. Authorities lifted a Sig Alert for this incident shortly after 8:15 a.m. One lane was blocked.
