Caltrans worker injured in I-15 wreck

Posted: Updated:

MIRA MESA (CBS 8) - A Caltrans pickup truck crashed into a semi-truck on Interstate-15, sending a Caltrans worker to the hospital.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. Friday night on southbound I-15 near Mira Mesa Boulevard.

CHP says the semi truck was stopped in traffic when the Caltrans pickup rammed into the back of the big rig without stopping for unknown reasons.

The driver of the pickup had to be rescued from the wreckage and rushed to a hospital.  So far, there is no word on his condition.

This accident comes just days after a 52-year-old Caltrans worker was killed trying to walk across the open 2-lane transition ramp from northbound I-15 to eastbound 94.

Richard Gonzalez died at the scene. His funeral is scheduled for next Wednesday.
