Truck Crashed in Ravine

Several fire engines parked along the highway above the wreckage



    Rescue crews called for chainsaws to help remove a truck that crashed into a Solana Beach ravine Friday.

    The accident was reported just before 10 a.m. along northbound I-5 just south of Via de la Valle. California Highway Patrol officers issued a SigAlert because emergency vehicles were blocking the number five lane.

    The accident was originally reported to CHP as involving a tractor trailer but it appears to be a white pickup truck in the brush.

    A trail leading up to the wreckage shows the path the truck took from the northbound lanes into the bushes.
