Carlsbad crash snarls traffic

A chain-reaction traffic accident at a North County intersection Monday injured a motorist and snarled traffic in the area for hours, a police official reported.

The wreck occurred shortly after 7 a.m., when the driver of a northbound vehicle ran a red light at El Camino Real and College Boulevard in Carlsbad, Sgt. Gil Beason said.

The automobile crashed into another, sending both veering out of control and smashing into other cars.

Medics airlifted the driver who caused the accident to a trauma center for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

The crash left the southbound lanes at the intersection blocked for a time and slowed traffic in all directions for about two hours, Beason said.
