SAN DIEGO - A multi-vehicle crash backed up traffic on the I-5 just before the exit for the Del Mar Fair, Saturday night.

The crash sent at least 3 people to the hospital, per CHP sources.

A food delivery driver for the app Door Dash was looking at his GPS when he hit another car, causing a chain reaction around 7:43 p.m.

Investigators say the driver was going between 55-60 mph at the time of the crash.

The right two lanes were blocked during cleanup that halted northbound traffic for nearly two hours near the Via de la Valle exit.
