Two women suffered severe injuries in a head-on motor vehicle accident in Rancho Santa Fe on Tuesday, September 7. News10 reports that emergency workers arrived at the scene of the San Diego car crash and discovered the two female motorists trapped inside their smashed automobiles. The women were freed and transported for trauma care to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. A dog that sustained injuries in the collision was transported to a veterinarian for treatment.
While an investigation into this auto accident is still underway, some potential causes could relate to a dangerous roadway or intersection, driver distraction, or a vehicle defect. Investigators may examine whether the driver of the vehicle carrying the dog was distracted by the animal or if one of the motorists was talking on a cell phone or texting before the collision occurred. It is the responsibility of all drivers to safely operate their vehicle by paying attention to the road and following traffic laws.
