MIRA MESA (KUSI) — A collision on a Mira Mesa street left a motorist dead Friday and gravely injured a 4-year-old child riding in her car.

The fatal accident occurred shortly after 7 a.m., when the 27-year-old driver of an Acura Legend pulled out of a driveway at an apartment complex in the 7200 block of Calle Cristobal in the path of a westbound Honda Accord, according to San Diego police.

The resulting crash killed the driver of the Acura, Officer Tony Martinez said. Her name was withheld pending family notification.

Medics took the child passenger to a trauma center for treatment of life-threatening injuries, including a fractured skull, a broken pelvis, a fractured knee and broken ribs.

The 26-year-old driver of the Honda complained of pain to his lower back, Martinez said.
