Traffic accident on I-805, vehicle bursts into flames

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A fiery crash, involving several cars, snarls traffic on Interstate 805 in Kearny Mesa Thursday morning.

The driver of the car got out safely, but dazed, following a four car accident that left his vehicle in flames on northbound I-805, just before Balboa Avenue around 8:50 a.m.

Investigators still trying to figure out exactly what happened and why. Fire crews made quick work of the flames, preventing them from spreading to other vehicles or overhead signs.

The accident blocked the fast lane of the freeway, causing a small back-up, but since other lanes remained open and it happened at the tail end of the morning commute, traffic quickly returned to normal speeds once all the cars were removed from the scene.

No one involved in the accident had to be taken to the hospital.
