Multi-vehicle crash closes lanes on I-15 in Lake Elsinore
LAKE ELSINORE — A chain crash involving three vehicles Saturday prompted a SigAlert and partial closure of Interstate 15 in Lake Elsinore.
The crash was reported at 2:11 p.m. on the northbound side of the freeway, just north of State Route 74, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The extent of the injuries caused by the crash were unclear, but at least one ambulance was called to the scene.
A CHP incident report described people breaking the windows of one of the involved vehicles in order to free a victim from the wreckage.
The CHP closed all lanes except for the No. 2 lane while the pileup was cleaned up, backing up traffic to Railroad Canyon Road.
All lanes were re-opened by 3:33 p.m.
