SAN ONOFRE, CA – A crash involving a big rig and a sedan on Interstate 5 just south of the San Diego-Orange county line snarled traffic Thursday and prompted authorities to issue a SigAlert.
The crash on the southbound freeway near the Cristianitos Road exit was reported to the California Highway Patrol shortly before 4:30 a.m. The truck hit the center divider, then the sedan, which somehow ended up underneath its empty 40-foot trailer.
One person was taken to a hospital, according to the CHP.
