Driver rescued after rollover crash on I-8

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – An elderly man was trapped inside his car after a rollover accident on Interstate 8 in the Lakeside area Wednesday morning.

The white vehicle was driven off the shoulder, rolled and overturned on westbound I-8 at just east of Lake Jennings Park Road around 11:00 a.m.

The roof crumpled up when the vehicle turned over and emergency crews could not open the car doors and reach the trapped man. Crews cut off the roof and extricated the man, who was then transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

Traffic was backed up for about a mile.
