Tragedy on Highway 94

In a tragic accident Monday night, at least one person died in a crash that briefly shut down all lanes of state Route 94 in southeast San Diego. The crash happened around 7:10 p.m. in the westbound lanes of the highway near the Euclid Avenue off-ramp, according to a California Highway Patrol incident log. Several 911 callers reported various chaotic versions of events. One reported that a single vehicle, possibly a dark-colored Jeep Wrangler, crashed into the center concrete barrier. Another reported that a motorcyclist crashed, was hit by another vehicle, and was crawling toward the center of the highway. At least one caller reported that a pedestrian was struck on the freeway. Another caller told a CHP dispatcher that several people were out of their vehicles in the lanes trying to flag down other motorists. San Diego Fire-Rescue battalion chief Matt Nilsen said the dispatch call they received was not much clearer: they were informed of a fallen motorcyclist or a person ejected from a vehicle. Nilsen did not know which of those scenarios, if any, turned out to be accurate. According to the CHP, at least one person died and officers at the scene requested the county Medical Examiner's Office respond. It was not clear Monday night if anyone else was injured. The CHP reported that, at least for a time, all lanes of the highway in both directions were closed. Caltrans San Diego posted on social media that the left lanes on the westbound side of the highway remained blocked until 8:45 p.m. The agency said the eastbound lanes of the highway were blocked from about 8 to 9 p.m.
