SUV Overturns and Crashes into Light Pole on Black Mountain Road Leaving Driver in Critical Condition
SAN DIEGO, CA (August 6, 2019) – A male teen was critically injured following a rollover crash Tuesday morning in San Diego.
The accident happened around 8:00 a.m., near the intersection of Black Mountain Road and Rockfield Way. First responders arrived to the area shortly after.
According to police, a Nissan Armada, driven by an 18-year-old man veered off the roadway before overturning and crashing into a light pole.
San Diego Fire-Rescue crews immediately worked to cut open the vehicle and pull the driver out. The patient was then taken to a nearby hospital and was listed in critical condition.
It is currently unclear what caused the driver to lose control of the car at this time. There were no obvious skid marks and a witness told police it did not appear the driver was speeding.
