About ten years ago a construction crane collapsed, blocking all southbound lanes of I-5 just before the 5/805 split in San Diego. Some cars were heavily damaged, if not destroyed. There were no serious injuries. That may be in part because some drivers saw it coming. As you might expect, traffic was tied up for miles. Actually, all the way past Carlsbad, about 25 miles. It took more than 12 hours to clean up the mess and get people moving again. Some drivers got tired of waiting and abandoned their cars.
