Woman killed in Oak Park car crash identified

Posted: Updated:

OAK PARK (NEWS 8) - A mother of three loses her life in a high-speed crash Sunday in the Oak Park community of San Diego.

Maeshia Dixon, 33, was the lone occupant in the car that crashed early Sunday morning in the 2000 block of 54th Street.

Family and friends gathered at the crash site Sunday afternoon. Dixon's 15-year-old son was there and says he's heartbroken.

"At first I couldn't believe it was real. I thought she was just injured badly. I was hurt inside and I was crying, I punched a wall."

Police say Dixon was going approximately 100 miles per hour in a white four-door Nissan Maxima at 1:30 a.m., where she lost control of the car and struck the west curb, said San Diego police Sgt. Michael Tansey.

"The vehicle skidded out of control and struck a power pole on the west sidewalk," Tansey said. "The force of the impact destroyed the vehicle and pinned the female inside the vehicle."

Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to cut the woman out of the wreckage. She was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.

It's unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved.
