San Diego High Speed Car Accident Flips Car into River off I-8

By Ross Jurewitz on August 19, 2011

SD Car Flipped into River40-year-old Jennifer Varley suffered serious injuries in San Diego solo car accident that occurred on August 16‚ 2011‚ around 7 a.m. at Interstate 8 (I-8) and West Mission Bay Drive. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers‚ Varley and another vehicle were travelling down West Mission Bay Drive at 100 mph when she lost control of her Pontiac Grand Am‚ went down an embankment‚ and landed on its roof.

Tom MacDonald‚ a homeless man who lives along the river‚ rushed to the car and cut the woman out of her seatbelt and stayed with her until firefighters arrived. The victim suffered serious injuries and was immediately transported to UCSD to receive medical treatment.

From the available information‚ it is unclear what made Varley lose control of her car.  The accident is under investigation. The police are on the lookout for the second car involved. Varley’s statements will clarify the involvement of the other car.

Regardless of the facts‚ the victim should consult with a San Diego car accident a attorney who can hire a trained private investigator to investigate how the crash occurred and to determine if there are any facts which would suggest that the accident was the cause of someone else’s negligence.

Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by Varley heal soon and do not prove life threatening.
