A motorist suffered serious injuries Monday morning in a solo rollover crash on Interstate 15 in the Fairmount Park area.

The driver was behind the wheel of a Chevrolet pickup truck that crashed shortly before 6:10 a.m. on the southbound I-15 near state Route 94, California Highway Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt said.

At some point, the truck struck a tree and ended up on its side, Bettencourt said. The unidentified driver was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego for treatment of major injuries, the officer said.

A SigAlert was issued for the left two lanes of southbound I-15 around 6:30 a.m. The lanes were reopened around 7:20 a.m.
