A truck drove off a National City freeway and onto the street below early Saturday morning.
The silver truck lost control around 2:20 a.m. on Interstate 805, according to the California Highway Patrol. The truck apparently rolled down the hill and landed in the 2800 block of Euclid Avenue.
The front of the truck was smashed in, and the windshield was shattered. Debris from the crash littered the road and hillside.
CHP said at least one person was taken to the hospital. That person’s condition has not been released.
Heavy rain overnight contributed to several crashes across the county, including a four-vehicle pileup on State Route 94 in Mount Hope that injured at least two people and held up traffic for more than an hour, according to CHP.
