Driver Severely Hurt in Fallbrook Solo-Vehicle Accident
FALLBROOK, CA (March 7, 2019) – A driver was seriously injured after a solo-car crash in a remote area north of Fallbrook on Wednesday, March 6.
The four-door sedan collided off Sandia Creek Drive north of Rock Mountain Road in De Luz at around 3 p.m., according to John Choi, a fire captain with North County Fire Protection District.
The vehicle swerved off the rain-slick road and then it fell about 100 feet down a steep, brushy embankment.
Emergency personnel used ropes to get to the spot where the vehicle came to a stop. They extricated the driver from the wreckage and hoisted the victim out of the ravine in a litter, Choi stated.
It took emergency crews almost an hour to free the victim from the crashed vehicle.
Medics transported the driver to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
No information on the victim was immediately available. The reason behind the solo car crash is still unclear.
Driving in the rain can be dangerous. Thousands of car accidents each year are caused by wet driving conditions. Routinely check your engine and your tires for their integrity and pressure. Slow down to be able to recover from a skid. Keep a safe distance from the vehicle next to you and watch out for any incoming obstacles or slippery parts of the road.
