SAN DIEGO, CA – The 75-year-old driver of a Toyota pickup truck sustained serious injuries when another driver ran a red light and caused a three-car crash, reports Fox 5 San Diego.
The incident happened before 7 p.m. last Thursday at the intersection of Skyline Drive and Sychar Road, which is just southwest of Officer Christopher Wilson Memorial Park.
The investigation indicates that the 29-year-old female driver of a westbound Ford pickup ran a red light at the intersection and struck the Toyota pickup. The collision then caused the Ford to strike a Lexus sedan on the eastbound side of Skyline Drive.
Medics transported the driver of the Toyota pickup to the hospital with a collapsed lung, broken ribs, and a fractured sternum.
The driver of the Lexus sustained minor injuries.
It is unclear if the driver of the Toyota was hurt.
A full investigation is underway.
