Car Fire On I-5 Spreads, Shuts Down Freeway

Late last night, a car traveling on the I-5 freeway near Calgrove Blvd crashed and caught fire. The fire spread to brush on the side of the road, forcing a closure of the I-5 freeway for about an hour.

  

This all happened just before 11:00 Friday night, and the freeway was shut down until midnight.

 

A Sheriff's Department officer working at the scene fell and suffered a broken hip.

 

The driver of the vehicle left the scene of the accident, and after being located, he was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving.
