SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A major crash on state Route 94 in San Diego’s Webster area sent several people to the hospital and caused traffic backups early Monday morning.
According to California Highway Patrol, at around 12: 10 a.m., a black sedan traveling on southbound Euclid Avenue somehow veered off the roadway, went down an embankment and onto westbound SR-94.
The crash caused a chain reaction of vehicles slamming into the back of the black sedan while the driver was trapped inside.
To prevent the pile-up from getting worse, witnesses sprang into action using a light to wave down the traffic.
When fire crews arrived, they had to use the jaws of life to remove the driver from her car. She was taken to a hospital with major injuries.
Several other drivers were also transported to a hospital with minor injuries.
CHP is investigating what caused the black car to lose control and crash.
