Suspected drunk driver severely injured after driving into brick wall

CARLSBAD (KUSI) – A suspected drunken or drugged driver was severely injured in a single-vehicle crash in coastal Carlsbad, police said Monday.

A 23-year-old San Marcos man apparently lost control of his 2001 Ford Ranger and allowed it to veer off southbound Carlsbad Boulevard near Cannon Road around 9:45 p.m. Sunday, according to a Carlsbad police statement.

The truck rolled several times and struck a brick wall, trapping the driver inside. Fire department personnel freed the driver from the wreckage of his pickup truck and airlifted him to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla to be treated for his injuries, police said.
