2 People Hurt in Point Loma Rollover Crash on Nimitz Boulevard
POINT LOMA, CA (April 20, 2021) — Two people were injured in a rollover accident on Nimitz Boulevard near Voltaire Street Monday night.
According to the San Diego Police, the single-car crash happened around 11:10 p.m. For unknown reasons, a front-seat passenger of a 1999 Ford Explorer grabbed the steering wheel and moved it back and forth. Instinctively, the 17-year-old driver turned the steering wheel to the right. As a result, the SUV crossed into the right lane, struck a bridge abutment and flipped over.
At some point during the accident, the front-seat passenger ejected from the Ford before the SUV came to rest on its roof.
Following the incident, two people inside the Ford purportedly left the scene before authorities arrived. Emergency personnel responded soon after and tended to the driver and the passenger, both of whom sustained broken bones.
At this time, the crash remains under investigation. Yet if anyone has more details, please contact the San Diego Police.
