SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 8 Sunday sent three people to hospitals and snarled eastbound traffic near Mission Gorge Road, authorities said.

The crash involved up to six vehicles, including a Honda Pilot, a blue hatchback and a black truck or SUV, and was reported about 2:45 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

One person who sustained "acute trauma" in the crash and one with lesser injuries were taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said. Another injured person was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital, she said.

Three others who were involved in the crash declined to be taken to a hospital, the dispatcher said.
