ESCONDIDO, Calif. — One person was killed early Wednesday in a crash on Interstate 15 in Escondido, authorities said.
The crash was reported around 4:35 a.m. on southbound Interstate 15, just north of Citracado Parkway, according to California Highway Patrol. A caller told emergency dispatchers that a silver SUV had overturned and come to a rest blocking the two right lanes of southbound I-15, according to the CHP.
Traffic was backed up to state Route 78 after authorities shut down the four right lanes of I-15. By 7:30 a.m., all lanes had reopened.
