Child killed, others rescued in crash on I-805

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A nine-year-old child was killed in a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 805 in Serra Mesa.

The crash happened just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the northbound lanes of I-805 near Murray Ridge Road.

Witnesses say the minivan, with the child, was stalled in traffic when a man in a pick-up truck drove up behind the vehicle and rear-ended it. The man says he didn't have time to brake.

Firefighters had to cut the roof of the minivan off to get everyone out.

The nine-year-old died at the scene, medics took an adult and two other children to the hospital. As of this report, their conditions have not been released.

As a result of the crash, several lanes were blocked, which created heavy congestion in the area, according to the CHP.
