SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Vehicles driven by two men allegedly under the influence of alcohol collided Sunday morning, causing serious injuries, a police officer said.
The collision occurred just after 1 a.m. at 17th and G streets, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
A 53-year-old man drove a Dodge Dakota pickup truck southbound on 17th Street in front of a 24-year-old man in an Acura Integra who was eastbound on G Street when the two vehicles collided, Stafford said.
