2 Hurt in San Diego Auto Accident on Fairmount Avenue
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 13, 2020) – Early Wednesday morning, two female passengers suffered serious injuries in a single-car crash on Fairmount Avenue.
The incident occurred at about 12:10 a.m. in the 3100 block of Fairmount Avenue, south of Thorn Street.
According to San Diego Police Officer Tony Martinez, a woman drove a northbound 2014 Nissan Sentra with two female passengers. However, she then lost control of the vehicle, hit a sign, and crashed into an unoccupied Mercedes-Benz van.
After crashing into the parked car, the driver exited her vehicle and fled on foot.
As a result, the 19-year-old front-seat passenger sustained a broken arm, serious head injuries, and a dislocated shoulder and hip. Meanwhile, the 26-year-old back seat passenger sustained serious head injuries and a brain bleed.
When you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to follow all traffic laws. Moreover, accidents can be avoided if drivers remain focused behind the wheel. Additionally, driving defensively can also prevent collisions.
However, if you find yourself unable to safely operate your vehicle, you can always use a ride share app instead. By doing so, you can help to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you.
