17-Year-Old Driver and Passenger Hospitalized in Nimitz Boulevard Solo-Vehicle Crash
Point Loma Heights, CA (April 19, 2021) – On Monday, two were seriously injured in a solo vehicle crash on Nimitz Boulevard.
The crash accident at around 11:10 p.m. near Voltaire Street.
Apparently, a 17-year-old girl northbound on a 1999 Ford Explorer SUV in the left lane.
Just then, a passenger grabbed the steering wheel and moved it back and forth. As a result, the driver was startled and turned the steering wheel hard to the right.
The vehicle then crossed into the right lane and crashed with a bridge abutment under Voltaire Street.
Afterward, the SUV flipped and threw the front-seat passenger, before it rested on its roof.
Rescuers took the driver and the front-seat passenger to a hospital for treatment of broken bones, which were considered serious though non-fatal.
Meanwhile, two other passengers ran off before the officers and paramedics arrived.
The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.
