5 hurt in rollover crash on Interstate 15

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A single-vehicle rollover crash on Interstate 15 Saturday in North County sent five people to a hospital, including two who were ejected from the car.

Around 7:10 a.m., the driver of a white sedan struck the center divider on northbound Interstate 15 just north of Gopher Canyon Road for unknown reasons and veered across the lanes, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The car came to a rest on its roof in an embankment below the roadside, CHP officials said.

Two of the people in the vehicle were ejected in the crash, Cal Fire Capt. Kendal Bortisser said. They were taken to Palomar Medical Center to be treated, along with three other people involved in the crash, he said.

The crash left two of the fourth northbound freeway lanes temporarily blocked, but CHP officials reported all lanes were open as of shortly after 8 a.m.
