Tanker Crash Blocks I-805, SR-54 Traffic

A crash involving a truck and an industrial truck prompted a traffic jam on Interstate 805 at State Route 54 in National City Thursday morning.

California Highway Patrol officials said the collision happened around 7:15 a.m. at southbound I-805 and the eastbound SR-54 transition.

As a result of the crash, the industrial truck began leaking fuel on the roadway. CHP officials shut down the transition and issued a SigAlert just after 7:45 a.m.

The area was expected to remain closed for at least one hour, cutting into the morning commute for many San Diegans.

The SigAlert was lifted and the roads were reopened by 9:15 a.m.

The incident is under investigation. No injuries were immediately reported. Check for traffic updates here.
