Pala Mesa | San Diego County
A 25-year-old motorcyclist was seriously injured in a 3-vehicle freeway car accident this Tuesday morning. The crash occurred on Interstate 15 in San Diego County’s northern area just after 5:30 a.m.
According to California Highway Patrol’s Officer Mark Latulippe, the motorcyclist was riding south past the area in Pala Mesa when he rear-ended a Ford F-250 pickup truck. Once struck, the truck decelerated because of the slowing traffic in front of it. This resulted in the truck crashing with a Jeep Grand Cherokee in front of it.
Paramedics arrived at the scene and took the motorcyclist to a nearby hospital. The motorcyclist faced major but non-life-threatening trauma and injuries, which included bone fractures. No one else was reported injured.
The freeway crash caused traffic lanes on the I-15 to be blocked for about half an hour.
