POWAY, CA – One person was killed and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash involving a big rig on State Route 67 near Poway yesterday, according to the Times of San Diego.
The crash occurred on southbound SR-67 near Lazy Acres Drive at about 1 p.m., when the driver of a Honda Accord headed northbound attempted to pass a Freightliner semi-truck.
The driver, a 23-year-old man from Lakeside, then collided with the truck, causing both to lose control. The Honda continued into the oncoming lane, where it collided with a Toyota Highlander being driven by a 44-year-old woman from Lakeside. All three vehicles went down the side of a dirt embankment.
The driver of the Honda was airlifted to the hospital in Escondido, where he was later pronounced dead. His identity was not released pending family notification.
The unidentified female driver of the Toyota was taken to the hospital in Palomar for the treatment of serious injuries. Her passenger was taken to the same hospital to receive treatment for moderate wounds.
The truck driver was not reported injured in the crash.
