Two cars collided on Interstate 5 near Lyons Avenue on Monday afternoon after a motorist suffered a significant drop in blood sugar, an officer with the California Highway Patrol said.

The motorist, who was not injured in the crash, was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for medical problems related to diabetes, a CHP officer said.

“She suffered from low blood sugar, stopped on the freeway and rolled back,” the officer said. She said she did not know if the driver lost consciousness.

The car was northbound shortly before 5 p.m. when it stopped in the No. 3 lane, then rolled backward. That’s when the collision occurred, the officer added.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to the crash.

No one was injured in the collision in either vehicle.
