Two people were transported to the hospital after a car struck a construction barrier on northbound Interstate 805 in Chula Vista (Tuesday evening).
An unusual incident also took place during the response to the accident. 10News was told a firefighter responding to the crash parked in the No. 1 lane on southbound I-805 and California Highway Patrol officers told him to move.
He did not move the engine and ended up detained and in handcuffs inside a CHP patrol car. He was later released. The exact details that led to the incident were unclear.
CBS News8 cameras were rolling when the firefighter and CHP officer got in a dispute over where the fire engine should park, while responding to the crash on I-805 near L Street.
CBS News8 video shows the CHP officer cuffing the firefighter, who was still in his uniform, at the scene of the accident. In the background, other fire crews and officers can be seen tending to the victims of the rollover accident.
The firefighter was detained in the back of a CHP vehicle for about half an hour before being released. CHP and Chula Vista Police say both agencies will meet on Wednesday to discuss the incident.
