Mother, 8 Children Injured in Crash on Interstate 8 Freeway

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Oct. 7, 2022) –  Rebecca Coy and her eight children were injured Monday afternoon in a car accident on the Interstate 8 Freeway, just west of Lake Murray Blvd. in San Diego.

The collision occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 3rd, according to San Diego ABC News 10.

A driver in a Mazda sedan reportedly struck a westbound van occupied by the Ramona mother and her children ages 7 months old to 16 years old. The van went up an embankment and overturned before rolling back down to the interstate. Her 10-year-old daughter Julianna was critically injured in the crash after being thrown from the van during the crash.

Paramedics transported her to a trauma center intensive care unit for treatment of a fractured skull, pelvis, clavicle and eye socket as well as a brain bleed, according to San Diego News 10.   The mother and other seven children suffered less serious injuries. Doctors treated them for a range of injuries including broken bones, cuts and bruises.

Authorities say that all of the occupants in the van were wearing a seatbelt or were secured in a car seat.

Investigators suspect other vehicles involved were possibly street racing prior to hitting the Mazda.  The driver from the Mazda told investigators they were hit by another motorist that fled the scene. Witnesses reported seeing two vehicles apparently street racing prior to the collision.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Meanwhile, the family has a GoFundMe campaign to help them with medical and other losses.
