1 Hospitalized, 2 Big Rigs and Vehicle Collide on 15 Freeway in Mission Valley
MISSION VALLEY, CA (December 1, 2023) — One person suffered an injury after two big rigs and a car crashed on the 15 Freeway near the 8 Freeway.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the multi-vehicle accident happened around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. For unknown reasons, an Amazon semi-truck driver lost control and jackknifed. Subsequently, a second semi-truck spun out and struck a passing vehicle.
Moments later, police and paramedics responded and took one person to a hospital with unknown injuries. Meanwhile, crews closed several lanes to clean up fuel leaking from one of the trucks.
At the time of the report, traffic investigators suspected overnight rain to have factored into the cause. However, an investigation into this crash should confirm more details.
Inclement weather, such as fog or torrential rain, increases the danger of accidents. Know the tips to minimize these risks. Use your windshield wipers to maximize outward visibility. Always ensure your fog lamps, headlights and brake lights work to help communicate with drivers when visibility is limited. Also, remember to drive slowly and leave space around other cars.
