July 06, 2018

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CA. – June 30, 2018 (10news.com) According to a news report from 10news.com, three fatal vehicle crashes occurred on the same day in San Diego County, California, leading into the Independence Day holiday week. 

One crash occurred on State Route 94, right after Kelton Road. California Highway Patrol reports a female driver traveling eastbound on SR-94 at approximately 3:30 a.m. crossed all lanes of traffic and crashed into the center divider. An Uber driver saw the collision and stopped to help the woman out of the vehicle and onto the shoulder. The Uber driver then crossed the highway to go back to her car (for an unknown reason), and a motorcycle struck her as she was standing just outside her car. 

The motorcyclist, who was reportedly splitting lanes at the time, died at the scene. The Uber driver sustained severe leg injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital. It is not clear what caused the first driver to crash, and her condition was not reported. Traffic on SR-94 was closed down to one lane following the accident. 

About an hour later, another fatal collision occurred on Interstate 5 North near Cockleburr Road in Oceanside. And still another fatal collision occurred on State Route 52 near Convoy Street. Information about these two crashes was not available. It is not known how they occurred or how many people were injured. 

Weekends before and after holidays generally see an uptick in dangerous vehicle accidents, as large numbers of people travel out of town for vacations and celebrations. Drivers are always encouraged to use their best judgment on the road to ensure they and their families have safe holidays.
