SAN MARCOS (CNS) - Two people were injured Saturday when a car veered off State Route 78 in San Marcos and collided with another vehicle, a fire official said.
The crash occurred about 2:15 p.m., on Grand Avenue just west of S. Bent Avenue, the CHP said.
A 17-year-old boy was driving a silver Pontiac Solstice convertible traveling east on State Route 78, according to San Marcos Fire Capt. Jason O'Brien.
The Pontiac's driver veered off the freeway crashed through a chain link fence and struck an Acura TL driven by a 49-year-old woman heading west on Grand Avenue, which runs parallel to the highway, O'Brien said.
A witness told CHP officers the convertible was speeding.
Both drivers were extricated from their vehicles using the Jaws of Life and then taken to hospitals for treatment of their injuries, O'Brien said.
About 50 feet of chain link fence separating the highway from Grand Avenue was knocked down in the crash, the CHP said.
The crash remains under investigation.
