CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- A driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI after two cars collided on Interstate 805 in the South Bay, sending one car sliding down the freeway several hundred feet.

According to Chula Vista police, the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday on northbound I-805 near H Street in Chula Vista.

A tow truck driver stopped to help and said the four people inside the overturned car were able to crawl out the wreckage and broken glass.
