A head-on car accident in Rancho Santa Fe on October 5, 2012 leaves two people hospitalized with critical injuries.
CHP officers say the crash happened when a 68-year-old Rancho Santa Fe man lost control of his car – a ’07 Toyota Camry – near Winland Hills Drive. Police say the driver was driving at a very high speed when he reached a curve in the road and began to spin into the east lane. As a result, the Camry broadsided a ’03 Toyota Rav 4 being driven by a 64-year-old San Diego woman.
Both drivers suffered major injuries and were taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. While alcohol is not suspected in the crash, high speed may be to blame.
Motorists who drive recklessly put both themselves and other drivers at great risk.
