An accident on Interstate 5 near San Juan Capistrano caused a traffic backup in today’s early morning commute when a stalled vehicle was rear ended by another, authorities said.
A vehicle traveling southbound on I-5 just south of Ortega Highway became disabled in traffic lanes and another motorist hit the car from behind, Steve Concialdi, Orange County Fire Authority spokesman, said. Authorities received the call just after 5 a.m.
No injuries were reported.
The driver of the stalled vehicle was not in the car when it was hit and the driver of the car that hit it was shaken but not injured, Concialdi said.
