2 Seriously Injured After 3-Car Crash on I-8

At least two people were taken to the hospital with serious injuries after two cars and SUV crashed on eastbound Interstate 8 Sunday.

The collision occurred around 3 a.m. near the College Avenue exit.

One man was thrown from his car.

Another man was trapped inside of his car before being rescued and taken to the hospital.

A third man was able to get out of his car and walk to the side of the freeway.

At least one of the men was given a field sobriety test, officials said. It’s unclear if alcohol was a factor in the crash or if that man was taken into custody.

Several eastbound lanes were shut down and traffic was backed up for hours.
