Two Male Teens Dead in San Diego Freeway Bridge Jump

 
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 9, 2019) – Two teens were killed and two others were injured in a jump off a freeway overpass after crash on Highway 56 late Tuesday evening.
 
The incident happened just after 11:00 p.m., on Highway 56 near Carmel Valley Road.
 
A black Nissan Altima was heading east when it spun out and crashed into a freeway barrier.
 
The six occupants got out of the car, possibly to avoid getting hit by an oncoming vehicle, which was stalled in traffic lanes.
 
Four of the occupants jumped over the right shoulder, not realizing they were leaping from a bridge. The four eventually fell 50 to 75 feet off the structure.
 
The fall left two men, one 18-year-old and one juvenile, dead at the scene. Two women, a 14 and a 15-year-old, were taken to Scripps La Jolla Medical Center with critical injuries.
 
Two others from the group who did not jump were last seen running away from the freeway and officers were conducting searches for the individuals.
 
The Nissan was stalled in the first eastbound lane of the highway with a crushed rear bumper. An open bottle of beer was also seen inside the damaged vehicle.
 
Lanes were temporarily closed overnight for the on-scene investigation, but were reopened by Wednesday morning.


Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims involved in this tragic accident.
