Early-morning crash in Sorrento Valley sends car 200 feet off I-5

Posted: Updated:
Authorities said a four-car crash in Sorrento Valley sent a vehicle careening 200 feet off Interstate 5 and into some water, leaving the driver trapped for nearly two hours.

The crash on southbound I-5 just south of Interstate 805 was reported at 4:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Rescuers considered using a helicopter to hoist the driver out of the wreckage but ultimately carried the person out by hand, according to a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher. Paramedics then took the driver to Sharp Memorial Hospital at 6:25 a.m., he said.
