Woman, 23, dies in single-car crash in Chula Vista, 2 hospitalized

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 23-year-old Chula Vista woman was killed Friday in a single-vehicle crash which sent the car's driver and another occupant to a hospital, authorities said.

Rebecca Anne Mabunay was a restrained back seat passenger in a black Honda Civic that was traveling west on Hunte Parkway about 1:05 a.m, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

For unknown reasons, the car's driver failed to turn onto Eastlake Parkway, broke through a wooden fence and traveled about 120 feet down into a canyon, the Medical Examiner's Office reported.

The driver called 911 and emergency responders extricated the female driver and a male front seat passenger, but pronounced Mabunay dead at the scene "due to obvious fatal trauma," the Medical Examiner's Office said.

The driver and the male passenger were taken to a hospital but their condition was unknown, the Medical Examiner's Office reported.
