2 Injured in Poway Crash on State Route 67 Near Ellie
POWAY, CA (March 5, 2023) – A DUI crash left two people injured on State Route 67 near Ellie Lane in Poway.
The incident began when a 2008 Mercedes-Benz sedan crossed into the northbound lanes of State Route 67, just north of Ellie Lane, in Poway.
The Mercedes then went the wrong way up an embankment along the northbound lanes, then rolled back onto the roadway. In the process, the sedan struck a 2017 Volkswagen GTI.
