SAN MARCOS, CA (January 24, 2021) – Saturday, a police officer suffered injuries in an accident on State Route 78 and Twin Oaks Valley Road.
The incident occurred around noon when a 40-year-old Vista woman traveled in a 2015 Chevrolet 2500 pickup. She headed west on State Route 78, east of Twin Oaks Valley Road, stated Juan Escobar of the California Highway Patrol.
According to reports, for reasons still unknown, the vehicle’s left rear wheel got detached. Then, it went into the center median into the eastbound lanes.
