Serious injuries in crash that shut down I-8 lanes for hours

SAN DIEGO -- A multi-vehicle crash forced an hours-long shutdown for four lanes of eastbound Interstate 8 at College Avenue near San Diego State early Sunday.

CHP reports three vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred just before 3:30 a.m.

One of the cars involved in the crash, a black sedan, ended up facing the wrong way, CHP said.

All eastbound lanes were shut down within 15 minutes. Later Sunday morning, traffic was restricted to one lane, which caused major slowing in the area.

All lanes were reopened just after 9:00 a.m.

CHP says a victim transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital suffered major injuries.
