A big rig struck the center divider and hit a minivan early Monday morning on Interstate 805 in National City, spilling fuel and clogging traffic past state Route 54.
The crash happened shortly after 4:50 a.m. on northbound Interstate 805 north of Plaza Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A 911 caller reported that a big rig had hydroplaned and struck the center divider before hitting a minivan, the CHP reported. The semi-truck ended up jack-knifed with its trailer blocking the right two lanes on the freeway.
No injuries were reported.
A SigAlert was issued shutting down the right three lanes near Plaza Boulevard, and a hazmat crew was called to the scene to clean up a fuel spill.
As of 6:45 a.m., traffic on the northbound highway was backed up from Plaza Boulevard to just past SR-54.
