At least one person was injured Thursday morning after a multi-vehicle collision flipped one vehicle and left one person injured on Interstate 8 in La Mesa.

One person suffered unknown injuries after a nine-vehicle pile-up that closed the first and second lanes of westbound I-8 near Lake Murray Boulevard around 7:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The agency's traffic reporting system reflects a three-to-four-vehicle accident that caused several more cars to pile up, flipping one on its side.

No other information was released, including the cause of the accident and confirmation of injuries.

A traffic jam caused by the crash has since been cleared.
