Police Investigate a String of Serious San Diego Car Accidents
San Diego Personal Injury Attorneys have been alerted to a string of car accidents in the San Diego area this past week – all of them extremely serious.
The latest happened early this morning in Solana Beach where CHP responded to an injury accident on the southbound side of Interstate 5. Police say a man and a woman crashed their pickup truck into the center divide. Crews used the Jaws of Life to pull one of the victims out of the truck. Both the man and woman were transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
Officials are also investigating a head-on crash that killed one person in Ramona Thursday night. The accident happened in the 21000 block of San Vicente Road. Cal Fire officials said two cars were involved, and there were at least three patients at the scene. The patients were temporarily trapped inside the vehicles, and emergency crews worked to extricate them. Police have not released the name of the victims or the cause of the accident.
A third injury accident, which also happened Thursday, is under investigation in the National City area. CHP say three people were seriously hurt Thursday afternoon in a multi-vehicle crash on the northbound side of Interstate 5. The accident involved at least seven vehicles and shut down both sides of the freeway. Three people were taken to UC San Diego Medical Center with major injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
