Del Mar crash snarls coastal commute Monday

DEL MAR (CNS) – A multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 sent two people to the hospital and brought southbound traffic through Del Mar to a halt early Monday, authorities said.

At least two motorcyclists and two or three motorists crashed on southbound I-5, south of Via De La Valle, about 7:10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Medics took two patients to Scripps Memorial Hospital, a San Diego fire- rescue dispatcher said. The CHP reported at least one of the injuries was “major.”

A SigAlert was in effect due to the crash, which blocked three lanes of traffic, including a carpool lane.
