Passenger Killed After 4-Vehicle Car Accident on Interstate 15 Near Mira Mesa Boulevard
According to an article from NBC San Diego, there was a major four-vehicle car accident that took the life of a victim on the southbound Interstate 15 on Friday.
As stated in the article, a collision occurred on the southbound I-15 freeway near Mira Mesa after heavy rainfall on Friday. California Highway Patrol officers responded to the site of the traffic accident, along with emergency personnel.
At around 5:15 p.m., the crash occurred. The vehicles involved, officials say, were a Geo Prism, a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, a van, and another unidentified vehicle.
Officials reported that the accident was caused by a negligent driver who was most likely driving too fast for the conditions beset by the heavy rainfall. As a result, one of the vehicles involved hydroplaned, causing the initial collision that caused four vehicles to collide.
As a result, the passenger riding in the Geo Prism died as a result at the scene of the car accident.
No other information was immediately available.
The investigation remains underway and authorities will release more information regarding the accident at a later time.
