A pickup truck towing a trailer overturned on southbound Interstate 15 near Fallbrook late Tuesday morning, injuring at least one person and jamming traffic for miles when authorities closed two lanes.

A driver on Highway 140 reported that a Chevrolet Impala was driving erratically around 5 p.m. on Monday before it turned north on Cunningham Road, according to Officer Eric Zuniga.


Officials said for unknown reasons the driver lost control of the vehicle, slammed into a tree and ended up in the middle of the intersection. A passenger in the CR-V suffered major injuries. The SUV spun out and ended going into the eastbound traffic lanes and into the path of a red Chrysler Town & Country minivan, he said.

Westbound lanes have been reopened on the 10 freeway near Whitewater after an overturned trailer ramp caused backup.
