A motorist suffered a major head injury and the westbound 10 Freeway was closed in Colton after a collision early Saturday, Nov. 10, the California Highway Patrol said.
The crash was reported at 4:45 a.m. A white Ford F-150 was pulling a trailer and overturned in the eastbound lanes east of 9th Street. The pickup landed in the westbound lanes, striking an SUV and a sedan.
The crash halted all westbound traffic. Some motorists tried to exit the freeway at the westbound Mt. Vernon Avenue on-ramp by going the wrong way, the CHP log said. Some encountered a tow truck that was trying to get to the collision, almost hitting it head-on.
The victim was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.
All lanes were open at 8:03 a.m., the CHP said.
