Updated, Aug. 9: Two cars collided on Highway 1 just south of Crespi Drive on Monday morning, causing injuries and snarling Monday morning traffic.

Pacifica Police have charged 42-year-old Essa Ababseh with felony driving under the influence of drugs at the time of the collision. He was arrested and released to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Ababseh was driving a red Ford SUV that ended up overturned on the shoulder of the highway. The other driver suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash.

The crash was reported in a text blast by Pacifica police at 8:06 a.m. Travelers were advised to use alternate routes. The road reopened at 9:30 a.m.
