SAN DIEGO — Multiple military humvees blocked traffic after crashing on Interstate 5 Saturday morning.
The crash happened on northbound I-5 near Cannon Road in Carlsbad around 9 a.m.
California Highway Patrol said four military vehicles were involved in a crash that left them disabled and blocking two lanes of traffic. A tow truck was called to clear the road and CHP said the lanes reopened by 11:15 a.m.
A witness said that no one appeared injured and that the crash may have been caused by one of the humvees losing a tire. FOX 5 has reached out to officials to confirm those details.
