Woman Badly Hurt in North County Freeway Crash

June 13, 2019

Temecula – A 20-year-old Riverside woman was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday with injuries she suffered in a freeway crash in Northern San Diego County. A Temecula resident was riding in a Mitsubishi Lancer that swerved out of control on state Route 78 in Vista shortly before 9 PM Wednesday, according to CHP.

The westbound sedan veered into a center median near Vista Village Drive, struck a divider wall and overturned, CHP public-affairs said. The young woman, who apparently was not wearing a seat belt, was hurled onto the roadway. Medics took her to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, where she was admitted for treatment of severe trauma. Her name was not released.

A 31-year-old San Marcos man who also had been riding in the car was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla for evaluation of complaints of pain. The driver told investigators one of his tires blew out just before the wreck. There was no evidence that he was intoxicated or speeding at the time. The accident, which forced a roughly 30-minute closure of the westbound side of the freeway, remained under investigation Thursday, according to CHP.
