Suspected DUI Crash on State Route 54 in San Diego
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Dec. 9, 2019) — One person suffered major injuries Sunday morning in a 3-vehicle collision on the westbound State Route 54, just east of Reo Drive in San Diego.
The California Highway Patrol reported the collision took place about 5:32 a.m. on Dec. 8th between a silver Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and another motorist. The report stated the driver of the pickup truck was possibly drunk and staggering around after the crash in the slow lane. The truck ended up perpendicular to the roadway. That’s when a third vehicle crashed into the pickup after the initial crash.
Paramedics were called to the scene of the crash to transport at least one person to the trauma center at Mercy hospital. Three tow trucks were called to the scene to remove the vehicles.
Police are investigating whether or not alcohol was a factor in the crash, but there was no further information provided.
