All lanes open on northbound I-15 after multi-vehicle accident snarls traffic

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Three lanes of northbound Interstate 15 and the northbound Pomerado Road offramp were blocked during Monday's morning commute because of a seven-vehicle collision that sent seven people to hospitals.

The crash occurred around 7:20 a.m. just south of Miramar Road, according to Caltrans and the California Highway Patrol. A SigAlert remained in effect until about 10 a.m., when the closures were lifted.

Among the vehicles involved was a tractor-trailer, according to the CHP.

Paramedics took seven people to various hospitals, a San Diego fire- rescue dispatcher said, noting there were so many injures, some ambulances transported multiple patients at a time. The extent of the injuries was not immediately released.
