2 injured after car runs into back of SUV on I-15 in Escondido

A 34-year-old driver and his passenger suffered serious injuries early Thursday when the car they were in slammed into the back of a semi truck on Interstate 15 in Escondido, authorities said.

The crash happened about 4:10 a.m. on northbound Interstate 15 near Del Lago Boulevard, California Highway Patrol Juan Escobar said.

The driver of the 2014 Ford Fusion sedan slammed into the back of a semi truck while both vehicles were in the far right lane of the northbound highway, Escobar said.

The Ford ended up wedged under the semi truck’s trailer, leaving the Ford driver and a 32-year-old woman trapped in the car, the officer said.

Fire personnel freed both victims from the wreckage and paramedics took them to Palomar Hospital for treatment of major injuries, Escobar said.

The semi truck driver was uninjured, Escobar said, adding that investigators believe the Ford driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
