Semi truck accident snarls traffic on Interstate 15 in Rancho Bernardo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A FedEx trailer truck crashed into the center divider on Interstate 15 Friday, spilling fuel and blocking lanes during the afternoon commute, the California Highway Patrol reported.

CHP officers said they received a call around 3 p.m. from witnesses who saw the truck strike the median and jackknife on northbound I-15 at Duenda Road.

Responding officers found the semi blocking four lanes and debris strewn over the carpool lane, which was re-opened about an hour later but without immediately helping clear up the huge backup that developed on I-15.

Traffic was being diverted to Interstate 8 while hazmat crews cleaned up the fuel spilled by the truck in the crash.
