A two car collision quickly developed into a 10 car pileup early Tuesday morning in San Diego, creating major backups and scattering parts and debris everywhere.

According to reports from the California Highway Patrol, the chaos began just before 8 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 8, during morning commuting hours as countless drivers made their way to work, where a Ford Mustang collided with a pickup truck, creating a substantial obstacle for drivers attempting to pass by.

While trying to avoid the accident, four vehicles rear ended each other in quick succession, bringing the crashed vehicle total up to six. A short time later, two more vehicles collided with each other attempting to dodge the pile up, followed by another set of vehicles that also crashed into each other, bringing the final accident total to ten vehicles, all of which suffered significant damages.

Fortunately, the injury total was as minimal as could be, as just one driver from the initial crash was hurt, complaining of neck pains. He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and was released shortly after.

Felipe Orozco, a witness to the crash, was on his way to school when the debacle took place. “I just heard a big crash and the car was on top of us. You could hear the crystal cracking… cars just kept stopping and by the time we stopped the cars had already hit.”

Despite the carnage, Orozco was relieved that the injury total was not much higher. “I think it’s impressive. I mean, God’s will at its best, you know? He could have taken someone right now, but he had us here.”

Cleanup crews were able to clear away the debris from the accidents quickly, allowing for a reopening of all southbound lanes by 9:30 a.m., though the backup through the area remained for several hours.

Though most involved were able to escape injury, the damage inflicted could have easily been much worse. If you or someone you know has been injured in a crash such as this, there are legal protections in place to ensure that you have the means to recover.
