OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) - Local Marines jump into action to help three people trapped in a car, after a violent crash in Oceanside.

It happened Wednesday night in the 2100 block of Vista Way.

Authorities say three men were in a speeding car, when the driver lost control, hit the curb and slammed into a palm tree.

A group of marines, eating dinner at a nearby restaurant, heard it.

"We ripped off the windshield and got the passenger out. When we attempted to get the driver out, emergency services showed up," said Jacob Johnson.

Two people were flown to Scripps La Jolla Hospital, another was taken to Tri-City.
