A speeding teen motorist lands atop a minivan, injures a family

Six people suffered varying injuries in a freak car crash in the University City neighborhood of San Diego just after 8:20 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2.

According to a San Diego Police Department spokesperson, a 15-year-old girl apparently took to the road behind the wheel of a vehicle despite not yet having a license. Witnesses interviewed at the crash scene reported having seen the teenager driving the Toyota at an excessive speed down Miramar Road shortly before the crash.

Within moments, they witnessed the car sliding. It's then that she struck the center median. The impact caused the vehicle to become airborne. The vehicle traveled between the westbound lane into the eastbound ones. The Toyota that she'd been driving ultimately came to rest atop another family's Honda minivan.

At that time the minivan was crashed into, both a man and a woman and two children were riding in the vehicle. The kids have been described as having suffered only minor injuries in the crash. The minivan's male driver was apparently transported to the hospital with what's been described as potential life-threatening injuries. His female passenger suffered fractured bones as a result of it.

The teen driver suffered both broken bones and lacerations in the crash. Her 22-year-year old male companion, who'd been riding in the passenger seat of the Toyota, also suffered life-threatening injuries.

Although police have said that they don't suspect that drugs or alcohol played a role in causing the crash, they caution the public that they're still continuing to investigate what led up to it.

If you've been seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash due to someone else's reckless driving, a Vista car accidents attorney may advise you of your right to file a personal injury claim.
