Overturned crane shuts down NB I-5 at San Clemente
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. – Traffic on northbound Interstate 5 in San Clemente was halted Thursday after a crane overturned across all lanes.
The truck overturned at 3 p.m. blocking northbound lanes just south of Avenida Pico. The crash caused California Highway Patrol to shut down the highway for up to 10 hours.
Northbound traffic was jammed to the entrance to Camp Pendleton, aerial video showed. Traffic appeared to be getting by slowly on the right shoulder just before 6 p.m.
Debris was in the southbound lanes initially, but those lanes were soon cleared and flowing.
