At least one dead after PT Cruiser rolls off highway, into park

EL CAJON, CA – One person died after a vehicle rolled off a highway in El Cajon and into a county park in El Cajon last night, according to the Times of San Diego.

The accident occurred at 14787 Olde Highway 80, near Flinn Springs County Park, just after 7:45 p.m., when a Chrysler PT Cruiser traveled off the side of the roadway.

The vehicle plunged down an embankment, and into the park, which was closed. This forced emergency crews to wait so that the gates could be unlocked.

At least one person died of injuries sustained during the crash.
