Driver seriously hurt in DUI rollover crash

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was seriously injured in an alcohol-related rollover crash at an intersection in North Clairemont early Saturday, a police officer said.

The driver and a passenger of a 1997 Toyota truck were headed west on Genesee Avenue at a high rate of speed about 2:15 a.m., and the truck rolled as the driver was turning left onto Chickasaw Court, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

Stafford said alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The driver sustained head injuries and was taken to a hospital, police said, and early police reports the driver was dead were the result of a miscommunication.

A passenger complained of pain following the crash, police said.
