Woman killed in rollover crash on I-15

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A San Diego woman was partially thrown from a car and suffered fatal head injuries at a Kearny Mesa interchange Christmas Eve.

Tina Kohr, 20 was apparently not wearing seat belts and sitting in the backseat of a white 1996 Toyota Camry that failed to make the transition from northbound Interstate 15 to eastbound State Route 52.

CHP officer Juan Escobar said the Camry hit a guardrail, rolled several times and came to rest

on its roof on the the right shoulder of I-15.

Kohr was fatally injured when she was thrown partially through the car's rear window.

A CHP dispatcher said the Camry's female driver survived the crash with non-life threatening injuries, as did her male front-seat passenger.

"The hood of the Camry came off and another vehicle, a black BMW, hit it," the dispatcher said.

The dispatcher said the BMW's female driver was uninjured. The extent of damage to her vehicle was unknown.

The incident occurred about 6:52 p.m., a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

Escobar said the Toyota's female driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She and her male front-seat passenger were wearing seat belts. Kohr in the rear of her vehicle was not wearing a seat belt.
