Multiple freeway closures snarl morning commute

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego commuters had quite a time Thursday morning with multiple crashes and freeway closings during rush hour.

Both lanes of traffic on state Route 163 near Robinson and Washington streets were closed initially when the CHP was alerted that someone had jumped to his death from an overcrossing in Hillcrest.

Northbound lanes were quickly re-opened but the lanes going south remained closed for most of the morning, causing major traffic delays.

In the College Area, three people are recovering in the hospital Thursday after a multi-car pile-up and freeway closure on Interstate 8.

Eight vehicles and a motorcycle were involved in that crash at around 5 a.m.

Westbound lanes near the College Avenue exit were closed for several hours but re-opened by 7:30 a.m.
