EL CAJON, CA – One person went to the hospital after a car collided with a truck hauling pool chemicals in El Cajon on Saturday, reports KGTV 10 News.
The incident occurred just after 2 p.m. at the intersection of Claydelle Avenue and Lexington Avenue, which is between West Main Street and East Washington Avenue.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but police say it involved a passenger vehicle and a pool maintenance truck hauling pool acid and chlorine.
Officials dispatched a HazMat team to the scene because the crash caused chlorine and pool acid to spill in the back of the truck. Crews worked quickly to contain the spill.
Medics transported the driver of the car to Grossmont Hospital. The extent of their injuries is unclear at this time.
No other injuries have been reported from the accident.
The investigation continues.
