Driver jumps out of truck on I-5 in Encinitas

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in the hospital with major injuries after apparently leaping from a moving truck on a North County freeway.

The California Highway Patrol reports that the driver, according to witnesses, jumped out of the vehicle last night on the northbound five near the Leucadia Boulevard exit.

He was hit by at least one other vehicle. Medics airlifted him to Scripps La Jolla. The truck continued rolling for about a mile, until it hit a pole and crashed into a ditch near the La Costa off-ramp. No other vehicles were hit.

Officers say they don't know why the driver jumped out of the truck.
