Woman Critically Injured; Man, 2 Children Hurt
CHULA VISTA, Calif. (May 4, 2018) — Two adults and two children were hospitalized Friday following a crash on Telegraph Canyon Road allegedly caused by a driver making an illegal U-turn at Apache Drive, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
The collision took place about 6:45 a.m. when a driver in a white Honda was heading westbound on Telegraph Canyon Road and made an illegal U-turn at Apache Drive. The Honda was struck by an eastbound Chevrolet Camaro, driven by an unlicensed 15-year-old driver.
The impact caused the Honda to careen back into the westbound lanes of Telegraph Canyon Road where it was struck head-on by a third driver in a gray Honda Civic. The woman driving the Honda Civic suffered major injuries in the crash.
Paramedics responded and rushed the woman to a trauma center. The man driving the first Honda and his two children who were in his vehicle were evaluated on scene for complaints of pain. The man was taken to a local hospital and his children were taken to Rady Children’s Hospital for evaluation.
Police cited the teenager driving the Camaro for driving without a license.
