Reports: Truck launches off I-15, crosses Old 395 before ending up in ditch

At roughly 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, the driver of a Toyota Tacoma seemingly lost control of the vehicle while traveling southbound on Interstate 15, launched off the side of the freeway, and crossed Old 395 before coming to rest in a ditch adjacent to Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook.

According to the California Highway Patrol, no injuries were reported in the incident, even though a reporting party said they witnessed the truck "fly off the southbound 15 freeway and land nose-first into the gully."

The truck also knocked over a barbed wire fence and uprooted six stakes during the accident.
