A motorist was trapped in the wreckage when a car crashed on Interstate 8 near San Diego State University today, and two eastbound lanes were blocked.
California Highway Patrol officers said a black Honda crashed into a sign pole on the side of the freeway near College Avenue and overturned shortly after 11 a.m., the CHP reported.
Someone inside the car was trapped inside and fire personnel were requested to cut that person out, CHP officials said.
It was unclear if that person was driving the car, or was a passenger.
The person was extricated from the wrecked vehicle and taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said.
The extent of that person’s injuries was unknown, the dispatcher said.
The crash was blocking the eastbound freeway’s two right lanes and a SigAlert was issued, according to the CHP.
A tow truck was dispatched for the disabled vehicle.
