SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8/CNS) — An overturned semi truck put a snag in the evening commute Monday for drivers on northbound Interstate 805. 

The overturned truck forced a closure of the far right lane of northbound Interstate 805 at Balboa Avenue in Kearny Mesa and the driver of the truck was injured.

When crews arrived after the noon-time incident, they found the driver trapped but were able to rescue him. 

He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 

The on-ramp and off-ramp to the freeway from Balboa Avenue were also closed following the incident, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP issued a congestion alert for the area and the slow lane remained closed until the evening.
