Three people were sent to the hospital following a two-car crash on the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway at Harbor Boulevard in the rain Wednesday morning, authorities said.
About 6:23 a.m. a car spun out of control in the carpool lane, coming to a rest facing the wrong way. A second vehicle didn't have time to stop and slammed into the first car head-on, said California Highway Patrol officials.
Authorities didn't have details on who the passengers were or the extent of their injuries. One person was sent to Western Medical Center's trauma center in Santa Ana, another was sent to UCI Medical Center's trauma center and a third person was sent to a local hospital, officials said.
A SigAlert was issued for about an hour.
