2 Women Changing Tire Struck by Vehicle on Highway 52
LA JOLLA, CA (December 30, 2021) — Two women changing a tire were hit by a car on Highway 52 near the 5 Freeway on Wednesday morning.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the major injury incident happened at approximately 12:15 a.m. For unknown reasons, an eastbound driver approaching the two women lost control and struck the pair as they were changing out a flat tire.
Shortly after, paramedics reached the scene and brought the victims to Scripps La Jolla Hospital for treatment. Meanwhile, officers interviewed the driver who did not appear wounded in the crash.
