Just after 8:00 p.m. on May 18, a major vehicular accident took place in the 4000 block of Rueda Drive, near the intersection of Rueda and Tierrasanta Boulevard.

According to witnesses and emergency utility workers, a car driven by an 18-year-old came down the hill at a high rate of speed, lost control, and slammed into another vehicle coming in the opposite direction. One vehicle landed on its side while the other shot off the road and took out a telephone juncture box.

Police and San Diego Fire-Rescue personnel responded. There were serious injuries and six people were taken to hospitals. There were no extrications necessary, and all victims were expected to survive.

There were scattered beer cans at the scene; the teen was suspected of driving under the influence.

This accident could have ended way worse, so the teen is lucky to have walked away alive. We keep seeing too many of DUI cases like this, but making the laws and punishment stricter does not seem to help lower the accident rates. Why not? http://www.carid.com

Another accident where the driver was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol? Worse, the driver was a teen? I mean, what’s happening? Of late, there have been too many incidents. Thank God, the victims were expected to survive. I actually hope they did.
