Woman killed in Oceanside head-on collision
OCEANSIDE (CNS) – Oceanside police are investigating a head-on crash
that killed a woman and injured several other people.
The crash in the 4000 block of Oceanside Boulevard occurred about 6:30
p.m. Wednesday, according to Oceanside police Sgt. Gabe Jimenez.
An eastbound Acura Integra crossed the center median and struck a palm
tree before entering westbound lanes and striking a Nissan Sentra, Jimenez said
in a statement.
A man driving the Acura was thrown out of the vehicle and landed in
westbound lanes, Jimenez said, noting he sustained serious injuries and was
taken to a trauma center. The man's passenger, a woman, died at the scene,
according to the sergeant.
Occupants of the Nissan sustained moderate injuries and were also taken
to a trauma center, he said.
“Although the investigating is ongoing, speed could be a contributing
factor,” Jimenez said. “The name of the deceased is being withheld pending
the notification of her next of kin.”
