Fatal Crash Near Camp Pendleton on Interstate 5 Freeway
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (August 6, 2018) – Guadalupe Hernandez Velasquez, 25, of San Clemente was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on the Interstate 5 Freeway, just past Basilone Road, near San Onofre State Beach, according to San Diego News 10.
The crash took place about 3 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the freeway near the Orange County line.
The victim who died was reportedly driving a Chevrolet Suburban SUV that overturned on the right side shoulder of the freeway and was struck by an oncoming Nissan Rouge driven by a 46-year-old Tijuana man.
The driver of the Suburban was found outside of his vehicle, possibly ejected during the crash or maybe he got out of the vehicle.
The man died of his injuries at the scene.
