A 33-year-old motorist suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday in a collision at a Sabre Springs intersection, authorities reported.
The man was driving a pickup truck east at high speed when it plowed into the back of a big rig stopped for a red light at Poway Road and Springhurst Drive about 6 a.m., according to San Diego police.
Medics took the motorist, whose name was not released, to a hospital for treatment of facial injuries and severe internal trauma, including a broken hip, San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
No other injuries were reported.
