Police: Woman killed in El Cajon crash not wearing seatbelt

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A motorist who ran a red light at an East County road crossing Friday caused a broadside collision that left her injured and the other driver dead, authorities reported.

The crash occurred when a westbound Acura Integra entered the intersection of East Washington and South Mollison avenues in El Cajon against a stoplight and smashed into a Chevrolet Sonic shortly before 6:30 a.m., according to El Cajon police.

The impact sent the Sonic toppling onto its side and fatally injured its 36-year-old driver, identified as Nicole Hay. Lt. Frank La Haye said. Hay died at the scene.

Medics took the other motorist, a 43-year-old El Cajon woman, to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were believed to be non-life-threatening, La Haye said.

Preliminary evidence indicated that the driver of the Sonic was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck.

Speeding and intoxication did not appear to have been factors in the accident, though investigations were ongoing, according to La Haye. Charges may be pending.

In February, El Cajon City Council members voted 4-1 to shut off 10 red-light cameras in the city, one of which is located at East Washington and South Mollison avenues.
