CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA (February 7, 2017) (Map) – A collision occurred between a DUI driver and a semi-truck on the 5 Freeway, just south of Tamarack Avenue, at 11:40 p.m. on Tuesday.
A man under the influence was driving in an older model silver Honda Civic, when he drove in reverse and slammed into a semi-truck. After the crash, the driver of the big rig carried the injured man out of his vehicle.
An ambulance was called to the scene; there has not yet been a report released on the condition of the victim. An investigation is ongoing to determine cause and liability.
