 San Diego Big Rig Truck Accident 805 Freeay at Nobel Drive (Sept. 12)

Van with Flat Tire Rear-ended by Big Rig Truck on 805 Freeway

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Sept. 12, 2018) — A big rig truck reportedly slammed into the back of a stalled van on the shoulder of northbound Interstate 805 near Nobel Drive, the California Highway Patrol reports.

The crash was reported early Wednesday morning about 2:50 a.m.

Following the collision the truck veered off the freeway and went through a chain-link fence and about 50 feet down an embankment. The crash prompted the CHP to issue a traffic alert for roughly about two hours.

Paramedics rushed the truck driver to a hospital to be treated. It’s unknown what the extent of his injuries were at this time, but he was able to walk up the hill with assistance to the ambulance.

The two occupants of the van were a man and his coworker. The vehicle had pulled over on the shoulder after suffering a flat tire. The vehicle reportedly had flashed their lights, but they were still hit by the big rig.
