SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A pickup truck slammed into the center divider on Interstate 805 in North Park, but the driver was nowhere to be found after the collision.

The crash happened on the southbound side of I-805 at University Avenue at around 10:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials said they believe the driver somehow lost control of the truck, collided with the concrete barrier and then flipped onto its side.

The wreck caused a huge chunk of the concrete to be removed from the center divider.

Witnesses said they saw the driver unbuckle the seatbelt, run across the freeway lanes and up an embankment through some bushes.

A description of the driver was not immediately released, and CHP officials are unsure if the driver was hurt in the crash.
