Sheriff's detective, 2 others injured in traffic crash in Carlsbad

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - Three people, including a sheriff's detective, were injured in a traffic crash at a North County intersection Friday.

The three-vehicle accident at La Costa Avenue and Rancho Santa Fe Road in Carlsbad occurred about 9:45 a.m., sheriff's spokeswoman Melissa Aquino said.

An ambulance crew took the lawman, whose name was not immediately available, to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido for treatment of injuries of moderate severity. He was expected to make a full recovery.

The other two drivers also were treated for "non-serious" injuries, but it was unclear whether they required hospital care or if medics treated them at the scene of the wreck.

The detective was "on routine county business" when the accident happened, according to Aquino. Carlsbad police were investigating the crash, she said.
