POWAY (CNS) - Two people were hospitalized with serious injuries Wednesday following a two-collision accident in the North County caused by a distracted driver, authorities said.
The collisions occurred on state Route 67 about a half-mile south of Poway Road shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, said San Diego County sheriff's Deputy Mark Karo.
A man driving a large passenger van northbound became distracted and drifted into southbound lanes, sideswiping a trailer-towing truck, Karo said, adding that when he swerved back into his lane, the van struck the right front end of a sedan headed south.
The driver of the sedan and a passenger were hospitalized with serious but not life-threatening injuries, Karo said. The van driver was taken to a hospital but released a short time later, he said.
Alcohol did not appear to have been a factor in the accident, Karo said. An investigation was under way.
State Route 67 was closed from Scripps Poway Parkway to Poway Road for about three hours after the accident.
