SAN DIEGO, CA — A man and a woman were hospitalized Sunday morning after a single-car rollover crash on Interstate 5 near San Diego’s Barrio Logan area, according to OnScene.TV.
The accident occurred on the southbound lanes near Boston Avenue and was first reported by OnScene at 8:08 a.m.
An early investigation shows the man was behind the wheel of a Mercedes sedan going southbound at more than 100 miles per hour. At one point, the driver lost control at a curve, causing the car to strike the center divider. The impact sent the car across all lanes of traffic and up a steep embankment on the right shoulder before crossing over to the Boston Avenue onramp. The car then ran up another embankment before flipping and landing back on the ramp.
The driver and his female passenger both suffered minor injuries and were transported to UCSD Hospital.
The onramp was shut down for more than an hour during the emergency response and investigation.
