OCEANSIDE (CNS) - A three-vehicle crash in Oceanside that injured five people was under investigation Sunday, a fire official said.
Oceanside police and fire personnel were sent to the vicinity of Mesa Drive west of Rancho del Oro about 6:40 p.m. Saturday after a Toyota Corolla, a Nissan pickup truck and a SUV collided, Battalion Chief Pete Lawrence of the Oceanside Fire Department said. Lawrence said the car and the pickup were "destroyed in the violent impact."
One vehicle occupant, a woman in her mid-40s, was taken to the Oceanside Airport and was then flown to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, according to Lawrence.
Two men in their early 20s were taken by ambulance to the same hospital, Lawrence said. Another man in his early 20s and a teenage boy were taken to Tri-City Medical Center to be treated for their injuries, he said.
The SUV's driver and a passenger declined medical treatment, Lawrence said.
According to Lawrence, two of the vehicles crashed head-on and sustained heavy front end damage, while the third vehicle involved in the crash skidded off the road and struck a chain link fence, which punctured its fuel tank.
