Drivers Extricated from Vehicles after Collision

Male drivers involved in a recent head-on collision in San Diego had to be extricated by rescuers from their mangled vehicles that blocked traffic in the Fenton Parkway area.

Reports show that one of the drivers, a 70-year-old man, collided with an incoming vehicle on Friars Road after he lost control of his westbound pick-up truck and veered across the lanes. The other driver, a 25-year-old man, was said to be driving a Dodge Stratus when he was hit by the other man’s Ford F-150.

The head-on collision caused heavy traffic near Qualcomm Stadium as rescuers freed the men who both sustained multiple broken bones in the crash. The older driver had fractures on his ribs and limb bones while the younger man had both of his thigh bones broken in the accident.

The investigation is yet to be concluded as many factors must be considered before the cause of the accident is determined. It can be caused by the older man’s intoxication, fatigue, or distraction inside his vehicle.
